Driving while distracted is an issue that has grown so much it is now been the number one cause of car accidents, stealing the title from drunk driving, for almost a decade. This is mainly because of ubiquitous cellphone use and vehicular onboard navigation systems. Speeding has wavered back and forth between the number one and two causes for that same amount of time, readily filling in any gaps left by the other two.
