Injury Accidents in Cambridge Township
The issue of distracted driving has become so problematic in recent years that it is now the leading cause of car accidents, not just in Missouri, but throughout the United States. This increase in driver inattention is mostly due to cellphones and onboard navigation systems commanding the focus of the driver as opposed to their surroundings. Speeding, an ever-present safety issue, remains a close second in terms of accident-causing factors.
