Researchers from Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that distraction caused 70% of the more than 900 serious crashes that they analyzed. Out of these distracted driver auto accident crashes, dialing a phone while driving was the most distracting factor for the driver – it increased the driver’s risk of crashing by ten times. Likewise, writing and reading while driving increased the driver’s probability of getting into an accident by about ten times. Trying to reach something in the car increased the probability by nine-fold. Texting increased the risk six times, while reading an e-mail increased the tendency three times.
According to the CDC, car crashes collectively cost more than 99 billion dollars and about 438 million dollars in Massachusetts per year.
