Many crashes involve some type of driver error or distraction. This means drivers can impact road safety by paying attention to traffic, reducing speed, and staying awake. Eating, playing with pets, or doing things in the car while on the road, may take away focus from the traffic. Taking the eyes off the road for a second can result in serious injuries or death any moment.
