Distracting driving is not one of those issues that should be ignored because it can lead to severe accidents. For a better understanding of these issues, our friends at TindolFord.com have developed a comprehensive infographic about the risks of distracted driving, together with a useful guide for understanding what safe driving is all about. Distracted driving examples include eating and/or drinking, texting, changing the radio or when the driver is distracted by the passengers. Statistics show that almost 1.2 million people die on the world’s roads annually and by 2030 it is expected distracted driving will become the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
Various automakers like Ford have developed technologies such as Ford SYNC to lower distractions via voice recognition technology. Nowadays, owners of Ford’s most recent models can utilize hands-free tech to listen and reply to text messages without having to take their eyes off the road.
