DWP: The Less Talked About Dangerous Driving Distraction Says Eberstein & Witherite

According to Eberstein & Witherite Law Many drivers are unaware of the risks associated with driving while preoccupied or under emotional distress.

DALLAS, TX, USA, March 25, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Life is filled with opportunities to worry. Whether about finances, one’s children, health concerns, work, or other matters related to life’s daily grind, it isn’t difficult to get preoccupied with something that will take focus away from important tasks at hand. Even while driving, people often wrestle with matters emotionally that distract them from focusing on the road.

Say the Dallas injury lawyers of 1800 CAR WRECK, driving while preoccupied or under emotional distress is a common issue in many car accidents. Distracted driving as a whole is a big problem that claims thousands of lives in the U.S. each year.

Distracted Driving

“Each day in the United States, more than 9 people are killed and more than 1,060 people are injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver.”

For more information about distracted driving, please visit http://www.cdc.gov/Motorvehiclesafety/Distracted_Driving/index.html.

Distracted Driving in the United States and Europe

“Distracted driving increases your chance of being in a crash. It involves doing another activity that takes your attention away from driving

There are three main types of distraction:

· Visual─taking your eyes off the road,
· Manual─taking your hands off the wheel, and
· Cognitive─taking your mind off of driving.”

Driving while preoccupied or while focusing on a serious emotional matter is not as heavily discussed as other driving distractions such as cell phone use. However, it is a problem that warrants attention in the same way.

The Dallas accident injury lawyers of 1800 CAR WRECK seek to promote awareness about safe driving practices to help reduce the high rate of accident injury that occurs in Dallas, Texas, and throughout the U.S. annually. The team encourages drivers to make efforts to put safety first even when under pressure. Asking for another person to be a designated driver in the event that one is dealing with a serious emotional matter, or waiting to focus on issues that may be too much of a distraction until after one has reached their driving destination can be life saving decisions.

If one is involved in a Dallas car accident caused by another driver being distracted or engaging in negligent behavior, they can contact the Eberstein & Witherite team for a free case review. The 1800 CAR WRECK helpline is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so those with questions about their legal options following a car wreck can call the law firm today at: 214.378.6665.
