In America, for every fifty one minutes, someone is killed in a tragic drunk driving accident. That almost equates to twenty seven people every single day. Statistics by FBI states that in the year 2011 alone over 1.2 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. Also over 3,952 drivers have been tested positive for drug involvement after they had encountered an accident and escaped with deathly injuries.

Teen car wrecks are tragic and happen way too often, vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in America. In 2013 alone more than 2,163 teens, ages 16-19 were killed and 243,243 were treated in hospitals for injuries due to vehicle crashes. That means six teens died every day as a result of motor vehicle crashes. The huge majority (75 percent) of serious teen driver crashes are due to what officials call “critical errors” One of the biggest culprits is the lack of scanning mirrors and other important spots that are a necessity in order to detect and respond to hazards.

What I found to be the most interesting from the reading that most of all car crashes are caused by distracted driving. Most distracted driving accidents are caused by teenagers or people who barley started driving. Distracted driving is caused when either the person who is operating the vehicle is paying attention to something that is going on inside the car or they are taking their attention to an object outside of the vehicle and not paying attention to the road. Over 5,000 distracted driving cases happen each year in the state of Utah. Nearly 3,000 of those cases result in injured persons and 28 result in death.
“Its under investigation, all I can say is they don’t know who hit them. The other car took off.” “Took off, what do you mean took off?
