No life is worth losing to driver distraction. In New Jersey, 98 people died in distracted driving crashes in 2018, according to the latest data from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Nationwide, nearly 3,000 people are killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, contributing to the 36,560 lives lost to crashes on U.S. roadways in 2018. There is no text message or Snapchat worth reading or sending when injuring or killing someone is the potential cost.
Distractions include more than texting. Anything that diverts attention from driving — eating and drinking, adjusting navigation, talking to other passengers, or talking or texting on the phone — can result in tragedy.
