As most of us have experienced, accidents can happen anywhere at any time. Imagine taking a fall while walking through the parking lot where you work or tripping over construction materials that someone left in the middle of the sidewalk. It is easier than it seems to suffer a serious injury from a fall.
When you are involved in a car accident, you are left with injuries and property damage that can be extensive. Many times, you have not only damage to your car, but injuries requiring medical care and lost wages because you had to miss work.
Driving distracted is such a huge problem that the U.S. Department of Transportation has issued a guideline that is attempting to inform us of the dangers of this activity. The topic of this booklet works to reduce the occurrence of driving distracted. Car accidents due to this activity can cause injury and death -- not only to the drivers of the vehicle but the passengers, pedestrians and bikers.
