Cognitive distractions may lead to Virginia car accidents

Virginia residents know that driving takes a great deal of concentration. A driver must pay attention to his or her own vehicle and navigate the road ahead, while at the same time observing other vehicles on the road, as well as weather and road conditions. A distracted driver is one who is not properly paying attention to the conditions surrounding him or her. Distracted drivers can be dangerous drivers, and lead to more than 3,000 deaths in car crashes each year.
