Car Accident Attorneys Raise Awareness On The Dangers Of Distracted Drivers

San Antonio, Texas based Carabin Shaw P.C. is reaching out to the wider community to share insight on the dangers of distracted drivers. They have been serving San Antonio and the surrounding areas for over 28 years, and more information about the law firm can be found at the following link:

Information shared by Carabin Shaw P.C. reports that, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration survey, 20% of drivers age 18-20 said texting does not affect their driving, and nearly 30% of drivers ages 21-34 said texting has no impact. However, each day in the United States, approximately nine people are killed and more than 1,000 are injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver.

Data shows that, at 55 mph, sending or reading a text takes a driver’s eyes off the road for about five seconds, in which time the driver will have covered a distance long enough to cover a football field and expose themselves and others to unnecessary danger. In fact, studies conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety have shown that taking one’s eyes off the road for more than two seconds doubles the risk of a crash.

James Shaw, Managing Partner for Carabin Shaw P.C., says, “It is a very unfortunate reality, but the truth is that there are a lot of people out there who firmly believe that distractions do not affect their driving. This is frightening, as it is a proven fact that even a little distraction can lead to great destruction both for themselves and others on the road. This makes it more critical that we spread awareness of the dangers of distracted drivers, something that we have come across more times than we would like to in our line of work as car accident lawyers. Only by sharing information and educating people can we hope to combat this issue and reduce the problems caused by distracted driving.” Learn more here:

Research has established that there are three main types of distraction when it comes to driving. The first is visual, where a driver takes their eyes off their road, such as to look at a phone and so on. The second is manual, which is when the driver takes their hand off the wheel. Finally, there is cognitive distraction, which is when the driver takes their mind off the task of driving. Carabin Shaw P.C. reiterates that anything that takes the driver’s attention away from driving can be a distraction, and this means that activities such as sending a text message, talking on a cell phone, using a navigation system and eating while driving can all endanger the driver and others around them. As such, these situations must be avoided as much as possible.
