April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

As many drivers in Louisiana are aware, distracted driving is increasingly becoming a problem across the country. Electronic devices are a major distraction for drivers, but they are by far not the only one. This month, drivers everywhere can benefit with a recap on distracted driving.

Overconfident driving and fatal car crashes

All sorts of behaviors can make a deadly car crash more likely, whether a person gets in their car after drinking excessively or decides to ignore the speed limit because they need to get to work on time. However, some drivers are overconfident, and this can significantly increase the probability of a motor vehicle collision. For example, an inexperienced driver may think that their driving skills are better than they actually are, or someone could ignore issues they are dealing with (such as poor vision or fatigue) and think that their driving abilities will not be impacted in any way. Sadly, overconfidence can be deadly on the roadway.
