Distracted driving has become a leading cause of car collisions in Coral Gables and across the country, and unfortunately the number of distractions in our lives is only increasing. When drivers are not focused on the road and on driving, even for a few seconds, they can easily cause a pedestrian accident, multiple car collision, or other tragedy.
There are plenty of distractions in our world today, from smart phones to endless to-do lists. We may be on call or get messages all day and we may even be wearing smart watches or other technology that beeps at us or demands our attention when we drive. Whenever our mind wanders behind the wheel or we remove our eyes from the road or our hands from the wheel—even for a second—a car collision can happen.
