While car accidents occur for a variety of reasons, one of the more common causes of car accidents is distracted driving. According to a 2006 report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving contributed to one quarter of car accidents.
The report also noted that drivers who use their cell phones are four times more likely to be involved in an accident. As a result of these studies, the majority of states have passed restrictions or bans on driving while using a cell phone.
