New device requires drivers to pay attention to the road
Over the past five years, legislators, state and federal regulators, safety experts and others have passed bans, adjusted regulations and spoken out about the dangers of distracted driving. Still, despite their efforts, thousands of people die each year in car accidents caused by people who simply are not paying attention to what they are doing. While most efforts to stop distracted driving have focused on the use of cell phones and other devices while behind the wheel, the reality is that the use of electronic devices is only part of the problem. The true cause of distraction related car accidents is drivers' lack of attention to the road.
