Don't let distractions put you in the hospital

It doesn't seem like a big deal to look at your phone as you pull away from a green light. It feels natural to eat or drink in the car on the way home from work. When you look at your passenger while listening to them tell a story, you don't think you're putting your very life in danger.

You drive every day, after all. Sure, it was exciting back when you were 16 and you just had just gotten your license, but now it's boring. It's mundane. It's easy. You feel like you could close your eyes and still safely drive between home and work.

That's why distractions are so easy to embrace. If you thought about traveling at 60 miles per hour in a 4,000-pound vehicle, going fast enough to seriously injure or kill yourself and others in an accident, you'd be locked in and staring at the road. However, you don't think about that anymore because you've done this for so long.

Some of the most common and dangerous distractions include getting lost in thought, smoking, using a phone, adjusting the radio and talking to other people in the car. These are all the same sort of mindless activities that we think we can do without losing control of the vehicle. However, distractions cause a multitude of accidents every single day in the United States. Some say they cause as many as a quarter of them.

If you revamp your own thinking and stay focused on the road, that's only half the battle. You still face risks when other drivers get distracted. If you suffer serious injuries in an accident, be sure you know what legal options you have.
