May 12, 2007, Kitchener, Ontario

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

A recent study finds that car crashes are the leading cause of death for those ages 3 to 33.  Approximately 80% of car accidents result from driver distraction of just 3 seconds.  Driver distraction can happen for a number of reasons including cellphone use or just handing your child a sippy cup.  This article outlines some of those distractions and how you could avoid those distractions and have a safe drive.
