One of the most common causes for accidents is distracted driving. When it comes to driving, being distracted can be incredibly dangerous. Distracted driving can involve anything from using a cell phone to eating food to talking to passengers in the car.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving played a role in 3,166 fatal crashes in 2017 alone.
