Residents of Connecticut like you who have to hit the roads frequently will also run into your share of dangerous driving behaviors. Among them is distracted driving, which may be on the rise due to technology. 

It is argued by many that technology has had a huge hand in the increase of crashes related to distracted driving, especially since the use of mobile devices have grown in popularity. This is because technology itself provides so many in-vehicle distractions, as well as distractions on your person. Mobile devices, for example, often tempt people into replying to text messages or emails, answering calls, or checking social media when their eyes should be on the road. This is unfortunately common practice among some age groups. 

It isn’t even just cell phones or other hand-held mobile devices, which often are the center of discussion when distracted driving is brought up. This distraction can extend to technology present in the vehicle itself, such as screens meant for entertainment, GPS navigating systems, or even music players. Since anything that takes your attention away from the road is a distraction and a potential danger, even the technological parts that are meant to assist you – such as the aforementioned GPS systems – can actually end up harming you in the end.
