Distracted Driving Statistics
The above is an infographic provided by the attorney at The Jaspon Firm
10% of drivers involved in crashes under the age of 20 were distracted at the time of the crash
421,000 were injured in 2013 in distracted driving crashes.
At any given daylight moment across America, about 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving.
Five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55 mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded.
