Distracted Driving Statistics and Laws

According to recent distracted driving statistics, of the 33,808 car crash deaths that occurred in 2009, approximately 27,046 are suspected to have resulted from distracted driving. Even more shocking is that while drunk drivers are 7 times more likely to cause accidents, distracted drivers are 23 times more likely to do so. To date, only a handful of states have instituted distracted driving laws, but the majority of them are not very strict despite the increasing number of distracted driving deaths that occur nationwide each year.

McIntyre Law, P.C. has created this infographic in an effort to educate drivers on the dangers of distracted driving, whether the distraction comes in the form of cell phone use, eating while driving, or simply talking to passengers. It is our hope that by sharing this information, distracted driving statistics will improve, and distracted driving deaths in Oklahoma—and everywhere—will decrease.

How to Stay Focused on the Road

There are a few simple things you can do to stay focused while on the road, and avoid becoming a distracted driving statistic:

  • Don’t use your cell phone while driving, to talk or to text. If it’s important and can’t wait, pull over.
  • Try to avoid eating while driving, even on long road trips. Eat inside the restaurant, or visit a rest stop.
  • Program your GPS device before you begin driving. If you must make an adjustment to your route, pull over.
  • Ask passengers to remain calm and quiet while you’re driving. Some conversation is okay, but try to keep it to a minimum, and avoid raising voices.
