Distracted Driving Vs Drunk Driving - Which One is more Dangerous?


Most drivers are aware of the dangers of driving. However, no one expects to get involved in a car accident. According to statistics, car accidents take tens of thousands of lives and injured around three million people each year.

The two main reasons why car accidents occur are:

Distractions

DUI (Driving under the influence)


Driving Under The Inuence of Drugs or Alcohol Driving is one of those things. When a drunk person sits behind the wheel, they will not pay attention to traffic, traffic signs, lights, symbols, speed limit. They will just drive regardless of any consequences. One in three drunk drivers will end up in a car accident. Keep in mind that these car accidents usually involve minor to medium injuries, but every once in a while, more than one person dies in these injuries. 3


Intoxicated Means On the other hand, getting pulled by the police while intoxicated means the following: ● You will spend a night in jail ● You may lose or get your driver’s license suspended ● You will have to pay fines and penalties ● You may end up going to jail for a longer period of time (if this is not your first DUI) 4


Driving While Distracted On the other hand, distractions are the main cause of car accidents. Whether you focused on the billboard in front of you, or checked your email, or responded to a message on your smartphone, or tried to grab your sandwich, the chances are that you will get involved in a car accident (and most likely cause it). After that, there is no going back. You will have to face the consequences of your actions. 5


Distractions are Everywhere Depending on the type of the accident and the type of injuries other parties sustained, you will be charged accordingly. You could end up paying a few hundred dollars, a few thousand dollars, tens of thousands of dollars or going to prison. Distractions are everywhere, and every driver should be aware of them. For that reason, focus on the road while driving, and remember not to use your phone, not to drink or eat, and do not play with other passengers while behind the wheel. Safety is and should always be your number one priority. 6
