Of the hundreds of blogs we write each year, hand-down the number one motor vehicle story of the year is about DWD—Driving While Distracted. The National Safety Council estimates that about 23% of all motor vehicle crashes can be attributed to talking on a cell phone or texting while driving. That’s about 1.3 million crashes per year. In fact, just talking on a cell phone—even hands-free phones—increase the risk of a crash fourfold. That statistic makes DWD the biggest motor vehicle story of this year…or any other year in recent memory. (To read any of the blogs, click on the title and you’ll be taken directly to the story.)
