Georgia GOHS Distracted Driving

ALL GOHS/GTIPI ITEMS  >  Distracted Driving

From cell phones and iPods to fast-food snacks and driver drowsiness, there are more than enough distractions to keep Georgia motorists from focusing on our four-lanes. And now new national data is showing driver inattention is a key cause in most crashes and near-crashes.  
 

According to a 2006 study of real-world driver behavior, distraction, and crash factors about 80-percent of crashes were caused by some form of distraction-- such as cell phone use or being tired—occurring within three seconds of the incident. The study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found drivers who frequently engage in the most distracting activities are more likely to be involved in an inattention-related crash or near-crash.

The Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety will continue to produce materials educating the public on distracted driving and recently passed cell phone/texting law.  For more information on distracted driving in Georgia, go to:
