Many mobile devices, especially smartphones, are becoming more and more dangerous to American drivers over time. The Governor Highway Safety Association conducted a survey of about 350 scientific papers to measure the distraction of drivers while driving. The results may be a bit shocking.
Many things distract the driver and create a half-time distraction. Surprised?
You may be distracted by eating and drinking (without alcohol, of course), talking to passengers, applying makeup and music, but mobile phones and smartphones are the worst known to exist today. It's a pastime.
Talking while driving is a common problem that arises over time. But the texting message while driving is even worse! When speaking with a headset, your hands are free and you are looking straight. If this is your phone or smartphone, one hand is free and you are still looking straight. But your attention is distracted.
But text messages are devils. When sending text messages, look at your smartphone, not the street.
According to the GHSA survey mentioned above, 25% of all car accidents (from minor to fatal) are due to the use of smartphones while driving.
If you are a business owner, your driving staff (fleet drivers, salespeople, etc.) may be equipped with a smartphone. Why? Because it's practical, modern, and necessary. Speaking or sending text messages while driving puts the risk not only on these drivers and other road users, but also on the property of the company.
Many states ban or plan to use mobile phones while driving, but many ignore those bans and continue to cause conflicts and dangerous situations.
Emotions and technology
Inattentive driving is known to be very emotional. It could be your parents' phone, your boyfriend or girlfriend, or any other important phone. But stop for a moment and think about one. Is this phone more important than your life or the lives of others on the street?
Therefore, if you want a less confusing driving experience and don't want to answer the phone, consider adding a GPS jammer to your car. With a small storage radius that covers only your car and not other spaces, you will feel safe and comfortable during your trip.
It's about your health and your life, and the health and life of your relatives and loved ones. Therefore, take a few steps to keep them safe!
