Distracted driving contributed to the deaths of 3,477 people and injured an additional 391,000 in crashes reported in 2015 by the National Highway Safety and Traffic Administration. According to the NHTSA, an estimated 660,000 drivers on our roads use cellphones during daylight hours. While teens make up the largest age group of drivers distracted at the time of a fatal crash, older adults are also included in this risky category of drivers.
