Distracted Driving Video in Florida
An interesting, and revealing, distracted driving video posted on YouTube clearly shows the dangerous prevalence of distracted driving on roadways. The video is a time lapse of 20 minutes recording normal traffic at a location along Interstate 95 in south Florida. The video team identified whether drivers were distracted – some by texting, some by talking on their phone – and indicated it on the video. In all, the video displays how often distracted driving occurs. Keep in mind, this is one video, of one section, of one highway, in one state. Distracted driving occurs more often than many people think.
