distracted driving fatalitiesRobin was traveling on the interstate behind a car that kept weaving from side to side. It was the middle of the afternoon, but anything could have been the culprit: alcohol, exhaustion, or using a smartphone. At one point the car traveled down the left shoulder for about half a mile. Shortly after, it swerved into the right lane, forcing a car into the next lane. The last Robin saw of the vehicle before she took her exit was the car traveling back onto the left shoulder and moving at a high rate of speed into the grassy median.

It’s safe to say that this distracted driver – whatever form the distraction took – is destined for a car accident, if not on the day that Robin witnessed his frightening driving then soon. People who regularly drive while distracted put themselves at far greater risk for being involved in an auto accident. And other behaviors complicate the matter. (more…)

drowsy drivingDrowsy driving is more than just falling asleep at the wheel. “It mimics alcohol-impaired driving in many ways,” says Stephen Higgins, a researcher at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In fact, drowsy driving has been categorized as yet another form of impaired driving, along with drunk driving, distracted driving, and drugged driving. (more…)

car crashes caused by deerWith more than 2 million active deer in Michigan, car vs. deer accidents have become a year round problem. Each year, there are nearly 50,000 reported vehicle-deer crashes according to the Michigan State Police. The number of deer-caused car accidents numbered over 47,000 in 2015 and has continued to rise each year, perhaps not surprisingly, over half occurred in the last three months of the year when deer were mating and running about fleeing from hunters.

rental-car-crashesAs the holidays quickly approach, holiday travels will intensify. Roads will get busier. And those roads will be populated by plenty of drivers who are operating rental cars and who, in many cases, are not familiar with the territory in which they’re traveling. Unfamiliarity with a highway or area can lead to a greater chance of auto accidents. And when a rental car is involved in a collision, the situation becomes even more complicated. (more…)

Pokemon GO distracted drivingThere are plenty of apps designed to help people drive more safely: They block texts or auto reply so others will know you’re behind the wheel and stop trying to distract you. Simply enough, they are intended to keep you safe. But it’s difficult to combat pop culture fads like Pokémon GO that encourage people to get outside with their eyes trained on their phone instead of on the road in front of them. (more…)

Distracted driving has quickly become an epidemic thanks to the pervasiveness of smartphones, but drunk driving is still one of the top causes of fatalities on the road. In 2015, alcohol-related traffic deaths went up 28 percent, from 236 in 2014 to 303 in 2015, according to Michigan’s Office of Highway Safety Planning. Fatalities among all auto accidents – not only drunken driving fatalities – increased 10 percent, from 876 in 2014 to 963 in 2015 – this is the highest the number has been in Michigan in the past five years.

Prom season has a bad reputation, and with good reason. Ninety percent of teens believe that their peers are more likely to drink and drive on prom night, and 54 percent of students have four or more drinks on prom night, according to a study conducted by Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) and a leading insurance company. But even admitting these beliefs and behaviors isn’t enough to stop teens from continuing to make bad choices that lead to fatal car accidents. As a result, prom night can be one of the deadliest for teens. (more…)

Distracted walkingTexting and driving is an auto accident waiting to happen, but what about walking and texting? Being distracted by your smartphone in any situation means you’re not paying attention to the task at hand – and that can include putting one foot in front of the other. Distracted texting has become such a pervasive problem that in New Jersey it may soon be a crime to tap away on your smartphone while you’re walking. (more…)

smartphone distracted drivingAnswering a phone call while driving is common. It’s not safe, but plenty of people do it, and they have a Bluetooth mechanism available to assist them so their conversation can be hands-free. Texting is also becoming less distracting with apps that read your messages to you, recognize voice commands as a text response, or that silence messages while you’re driving so you’re not tempted to take your hands off the wheel to read what’s incoming. None of these practices are recommended, but you might be surprised to learn that it’s more than phone calls and texts that have American smartphone users distracted while driving.  (more…)
