Distracted drivers can be as dangerous as drunk drivers, as distractions can significantly impair motorists’ judgment and reaction times. Although various efforts are being made to deter distracted driving in the U.S., every day, motorists across the nation are still making the poor decision to divert their focus from the roads, heightening the risk of crashes (and resulting injuries and fatalities).

Looking to tackle this problem head-on, federal authorities and transportation safety advocates are dedicating the month of April to support National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

To support this cause, Chappell Smith & Arden, P.A. has assembled a compelling infographic (featured below), displaying some of the most important and shocking facts about the distracted driving dilemma in the U.S.
