Distracted driving is dangerous and a serious concern on Kentucky roadways and roadways throughout the nation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that driver distraction is a primary factor in many car accidents. In Kentucky, during 2014, there were 53,500 distracted driving-related car accidents that resulted in greater than 14,000 injuries and 169 deaths.
Motor vehicle accidents can be scary. Many people die as a result of motor vehicle accidents every year, with many more injured, sometimes severely, and the vehicles involved in the crash are damaged. Unfortunately, such accidents are very usual in the country and a great number of these road mishaps are caused by negligence of the driver. Not paying attention on the road while behind the wheel, speeding above the permitted limit, driving recklessly and running red lights can cause serious crashes and put life at risk. Recently, a serious car crash in Fulton County, Kentucky sent two people to the hospital.
