New Haven auto accidents occur for a variety of reasons ranging from speeding and weather conditions to not following road rules to distracted driving. Most people think that distracted driving occurs when the operator is using or talking on their cell phone. The reality is that distracted driving is any activity that pulls your attention away from complete focus on the road. A recent study found that the new large screen systems in newer cars can distract drivers for significant periods of time.
Whether drivers are using these new infotainment screens to send text messages, make a phone call, or programming a navigation system, these screens can pull the driver’s attention off the road for up to 40 seconds.
