Oklahoma Distracted Driving Accident Law Library Entry for Monday September 25, 2023

Distracted Drivers

Distracted driving can quickly cause an auto accident and leave you with a damaged vehicle and serious personal injuries. There are many reasons that drivers may become distracted.

Drivers Distracted by Electronics

Electronic devices are great when they don’t distract you from paying attention to your driving and the traffic around you. Unfortunately, they have been the cause of many auto accidents in Oklahoma. A driver may become distracted doing any of the following:

  • Texting
  • Dialing a cell phone
  • Talking on a cell phone
  • Adjusting controls in the car
  • Putting in a CD or DVD
  • Watching a DVD

Young Distracted Drivers

Many younger drivers do not have the experience needed to constantly stay focused on the road. It is too easy for a young driver to turn the music up and sing along, horseplay with a passenger, or become too engaged in a conversation even if the conversation is not over the phone. Should there be a road hazard or other traffic problem, a young driver may over correct and cause an auto accident.

Other Causes of Distracted Driving

The attention of drivers can be taken off the road by a wide variety of things. Everything from construction zones with lane shifts to gazing at beautiful scenery can cause a driver to take their eyes off the road and hit another vehicle. Some drivers even shave, read or look for something that fell on the floor. Anything that takes your focus off of driving can lead to an auto accident ending in serious injury or even death.

If you or someone you love has been injured in an auto accident due to a distracted driver, please contact our Oklahoma City auto accident lawyers today at Self and Associates.
