Understanding the risks of distracted driving in Mississauga
Cell phones, iPods and navigation systems may be technological marvels, but these devices can create major distractions for drivers. Distracted driving is a factor in so many Mississauga car accidents. How many times have we read a news story about a tragic accident involving a young driver who was sending or reading a text message?
The proportion of distracted drivers in fatal crashes has risen 3 percent in four years.
While cell phone and texting accidents have become more prevalent in the last few years, modern technology is not the only source of distractions. In some cases, the driver may be changing settings on the radio, eating while driving or even looking at something on the side of the road.
The consequences of driver distraction
Driver distraction may lead to a rear-end collision in which the distracted driver is not paying attention to stopped or slowing traffic in the road ahead. Driver distraction at fast highway speeds can lead to more serious types of accidents such as a rollover crash.
If you or a loved one was injured due to driver distraction, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.
