The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has found that driver distraction plays a role in over 75 percent of all car accidents. To help prevent these accidents, Arkansas has taken steps, such as enacting Paul’s Law, to curb texting while driving. But texting is far from the only type of distraction that can contribute to car accidents.

What Is Distracted Driving?
According to the NHTSA, “Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving.” This includes things such as:
- Cellphone use
- Adjusting a stereo, iPod, or MP3
- Taking pictures, including selfies
- Reading a map
- Programing GPS
- Eating or drinking
- Applying makeup or grooming
- Reading billboards
- Looking at scenery
The list of possible distractions is endless, but some are far more dangerous than others. If you or a loved one suffers injury due to another driver’s distraction, you need an aggressive Arkansas car accident attorney on your side to help you get every penny you deserve.
