Distracted driving is found to be one of the key reasons for the ever-increasing road mishaps in US recently. The system and the government officials are taking the fact quite seriously. However, the statistics has revealed a shocking fact, which shows the number of people who continue distracted driving casually.

In actual figures, it translates to almost 6,700 traffic demises and 446,000 automotive crash injuries. Cell phone is also a leading factor, which contributes to 995 cases of deaths due to distracted driving and 25,000 of accidents. The under-19 age group contains the greatest percentage of distracted drivers, and is closely followed by the 21-28 age groups. In the course conducted for 150-Car Naturalist Driving lessons, the astonishing fact was revealed that the association of the driver in secondary errands has contributed to 23 percent of all the mishaps during the phase of the study.Cell phones are definitely the largest reason for distracted driving which is single handed more than the rest combined together.
