DISTRACTED DRIVING KILLED 522 PEDS & CYCLISTS IN 2015

Biking Elsewhere-> NHTSA’s Distracted Driving 2015 fact sheet reports there were 443 pedestrians and 79 bicyclists killed in distraction-affected crashes. Driver distraction is a specific type of driver inattention. Distraction occurs when drivers divert their attention from the driving task to focus on some other activity. Oftentimes, discussions regarding distracted driving center around cell phone use and texting, but distracted driving also includes other activities such as eating, talking to other passengers, or adjusting the radio or climate controls. http://bit.ly/2qPemcj
