What Are the Most Common Causes of Distracted Driving Accidents?

Distracted driving is on the rise, and distracted drivers are among the most dangerous drivers out there. Being inattentive to the road ahead increases the likelihood of a dangerous accident occurring. If another driver’s distraction leaves you injured, don’t put off consulting with an experienced Atlanta car accident attorney.
 

Common Distractions

While drivers can be distracted by just about anything, some of the most common distractions include:
 

  • Making phone calls
  • Having conversations with the car’s occupants
  • Eating or drinking behind the wheel
  • Fiddling with the radio or GPS
  • Paying attention to distractions on the road itself, such as billboards and other nonessential matters

 
One of the most prevalent and most dangerous distractions of all, however, is texting behind the wheel. When a driver takes it upon themselves to compose or read a text, it translates to driving distracted for about the length of a football field (when traveling at highway speeds), and this is just as dangerous as you imagine.
