Distracted operation of vehicles leads to accidents

Many tragic accidents occur across the country, including ones that involve motorcyclists in Atlanta, Georgia. Many of those accident arise due to distracted and inattentive driving. The American Motorcyclist Association acknowledges that this is a problem affecting motorcyclists as well as drivers of other vehicles and pedestrians.

The AMA states that distracted and inattentive driving is a danger to everyone. The organization says that even bicyclist, highway construction workers and emergency medical and roadside assistance people can be affected. This is a situation that everyone needs to be aware of.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration affirms how critical it is. They say that driver inattention is currently the leading factor in many crashes. Fortunately, there are things that people can do about it.

First, focus on your own conduct as a driver. If you do things like talk on the phone or text while driving, stop. Every bit of attention that you spend on those things is attention that you are not spending on driving carefully, endangering your life and the lives of everyone around you. Eating and drinking while driving also makes you distracted and inattentive and shouldn't be done.

In addition to yourself, however, there are other drivers on the road. Never presume that they will be as focused on their driving as they need to be, because that may very well prove to not be true. Exercise care when around other vehicles, so you don't pay the price for them being distracted and inattentive. When you see drivers who are distracted and inattentive, don't hesitate to call authorities. You may save lives when you do. Remember, keeping everyone safe on the roads is the responsibility of everyone who goes on them.
