Distracted driving is a big problem now-a-days. Especially with new technology and young drivers. In fact, drivers using hand-held devices are four times more likely to get into serious crashes. Distracted driving put those behind the wheel, their passengers, fellow road occupants and pedestrians in danger. As a recent report from Erie Insurance shows, the consequences of distracted driving can also be tragic. Teen drivers are more likely than any other age group to be involved in a fatal crash where distraction was cited. Of the more than 65,000 people killed in car crashes over the past two years, 1 in 10 involved at least one distracted driver (According to police report data analyzed by Erie Insurance in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System, a nationwide census of fatal motor vehicle traffic crashes maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).

Here is the list for the 10 deadliest driving distractions:

10. Smoking-related (includes smoking, lighting up, putting ashes in tray)

9. Moving objects (pets or insects)

8. Using other device or controls integral to the vehicle

7. Adjusting audio or climate controls

6. Eating or drinking

5. Using or reaching for device brought into vehicle (such as navigational device or headphones)

4. Other occupants (talking with or looking at other people in the car)

3. Outside person, object or event

2. Cell phone use (talking, listening, dialing or texting)

1. Generally distracted or “lost in thought”
