New vehicle features are causing distractions on the road

Most people picture drivers sending text messages or playing games on their phones when thinking of distracted driving. Today, distracted driving can be caused by built-in vehicle technology. Evolving vehicle features, nicknamed “infotainment systems” have added a new dimension to the conversation on driver safety. Tech-filled cars have recently been proven to increase driver distraction to dangerous levels.

New vehicle technologies such as touch screen features and voice-based systems are used to access the internet, send texts, voice command vehicle and more. A new study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows that this increasingly popular technology is causing drivers to keep their eyes off the road and hands off the wheel for far too long.

Protect your family from negligent drivers

Your parents say goodbye with a quick “drive safe” before you buckle your kids in the car and drive home. However, “driving safely” is not always enough to keep you and your family out of a serious accident. The unpredictability of other drivers makes it difficult to prevent accidents.

On July 8, 2017 a man was arrested by the Tucson Police Department after running a red light and crossing the intersection. The accident killed one man, placed a woman in critical condition and injured a third driver. The arrested driver faces charges of second degree murder, endangerment, aggravated assault and possession of drugs. How can you keep your family safe from this type of negligence?
