Distracted Driving Accidents in Florida

While texting while driving is banned in Florida, distraction can be as simple as changing a radio station or talking with a passenger. Distracted drivers can end up causing anything from minor rear-end accidents to serious accidents leading to a wrongful death.

Common examples of distracted driving include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Eating or drinking while driving
  • Using GPS
  • Changing the radio station or music
  • Talking with passengers
  • Putting on makeup

Studies have shown that drivers who are distracted can exhibit the same behaviors as those who are intoxicated while driving. As one can imagine, this can result in terrible accidents causing serious injuries.

Distracted Driving Statistics in Florida

A study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2017 found the following distracted driving stats:

  • 9% of fatal crashes that year were a result of distracted driving
  • Over 3,100 people were killed in crashes caused by distracted driving
  • People between the ages of 15-19 are statistically more likely to be distracted while driving
  • Almost 600 pedestrians were killed in 2017 as a result of distracted driving

Another study in 2018 found that 3.2% of drivers in the U.S. used handheld cell phones while driving (up from the previous year). Drivers using electronic devices while driving are on the rise, which means the risk of you being injured in a distracted driving accident are even higher.
