While more deaths are caused by drunk driving, more injuries occur from distracted driving. Drunk driving typically occurs at night or on the weekends. Distracted driving tends to occur during rush hours.
We can protect ourselves by enhancing our defensive driving skills by being skeptical of other drivers, being aware of our surroundings, maintaining a safe following distance, and avoiding our own distractions.
