Nevada Distracted Driving Accidents
Driver distraction is a common cause of serious collisions, not only in Nevada but across the country as well. Any time a driver does not place their entire focus on the road, they are engaging in some degree of distraction behind the wheel. Common causes of distracted driving include talking on the phone, conversing with passengers, texting and other potentially dangerous actions. Statistics show that distracted driving contributed to 3,500 deaths in 2016 alone.
There is no surefire way to prevent a serious car accident. While you can do whatever you can to behave safely while operating a motor vehicle, there is little you can do to influence those in other vehicles. This means the risk of a crash if always present.
