Kevin McCullough of Mazow McCullough discusses distracted driving, and some common misconceptions about distracted driving accidents.
Distracted driving can be dangerous. It can also be deadly. There’s a common misconception that most distracted driving collisions occur on the highway. That’s not true. More often it’s that side street or that main roadway in that small town where that distracted driver causes a collision. There’s also a common misconception that distracted driving collisions occur at a high rate of speed. That’s not true. Most distracted driving collisions occur between the speeds of 5 to 30 miles per hour.
As you can imagine, the everyday roadway, traveling at the typical speed, is the most common factors involved in distracted driving collisions. If you’re driving a motor vehicle here in Massachusetts, you need to pay attention. Not only is it the law, but for the safety of those around you. Not just other motor vehicles, but also pedestrians. Be careful, be safe, be aware of what’s going on around you.
