Inattentive drivers have become such a problem that they are now the main cause of traffic accidents, stealing the dubious distinction from drunk drivers for nearly a decade now. The primary reason for this is onboard screens, making the use of cellphones and onboard navigation systems easy for drivers to access. Speeding has seesawed between the leading and second leading cause within those same ten years.
