According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving claimed 3,477 lives in 2015 (the most recent year with available statistics). That’s over three thousand people a year who are taken from their families because someone didn’t want to pay attention behind the wheel.
These tragedies leave behind families that struggle emotionally and financially. These families lose their mothers, fathers, children, and spouses. Gone is the ability to lean on them in times of struggle or share in the joys of life’s achievements. And what that’s replaced with is medical bills and funeral expenses. This can be especially burdensome if the victim was the primary earner of the family.
