Distracted driving is not an uncommon or new problem but technology is increasing the problem and making it worse. Unfortunately, distracted drivers can cause serious harm and damages to victims of distracted driving-related car accidents. Distracted driving can include more common behaviors drivers may not think of as distracted driving but can also include behaviors like texting which is considered the most dangerous form of distracted driving because it removes the driver's eyes, hands and focus from the roadway.
One of the dangers on the roads we might take for granted are trucks. When we experience bad weather, we will proceed with caution. If we are near a road construction zone, signs and cones give us clear warnings. And if we see an animal or object on the road, we instinctively act to avoid it and prevent an accident. But each of these situations is relatively uncommon.
