Nevada Insurance Enrollment Explains The Majority of Car Accidents Are Caused By A Driver Who Was Distracted

LAS VEGAS - nvtip -- According to Eric Bolton, a spokesperson for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), most car accidents are caused by a driver who was distracted. Every day, nine people die because of distracted driving, and far more have close calls because of multi-tasking behind the wheel. If you've ever looked around while driving around Las Vegas, you've probably noticed how many people are dividing their attention between driving and texting, surfing the internet, or searching for the next song to listen to. It's not hard to see how this habit can result in a tragedy. Fortunately, there is an increasing number of tools to help drivers stay safe and alert when driving.

Top Reasons for Distracted Driving
Unsurprisingly, our smartphones are the most common of driving distractions. From reading and sending texts to looking up directions, many drivers divide their attention between their driving and their cellphone – often, unsuccessfully. A text takes an average of five seconds to read, and whether you're traveling at high speeds down the interstate or driving through a residential neighborhood, a lot can happen in that small window of time. Studies have shown that 97.5 percent of people cannot safely drive and text at the same time. Unless you are in the 2.5 percent that can, (most think they are in that 2.5%) you should put the phone away when you're behind the wheel. Move it out of your reach.

This is just one the most common distractions that drivers face. Others include eating and drinking, driving with kids or pets in the vehicle, picking the next tune by tuning the radio, conversations with other adult passengers, and road rage. Anything that pulls your attention away from your driving has the potential to cause an accident.
