Who’s The Most Dangerous Driver? Texting, Drunk, High or Drowsy

It is clear that drunk driving is dangerous and life threatening. But would it surprise you if I told you that driving drunk will increase your chances of being involved in a car crash by up to 380 times? It’s true! Drunk driving is by far the leading cause of accidents.
Researchers at Virginia Tech Transportation Institute have also reported that text messaging made the risk of a crash or near-crash event 23.2 times as high as non-distracted driving.
Drowsy driving, meaning less than 5 hours of sleep (rather than the recommended eight hours or more a night) is also associated with a 4.5 times higher risk
Cannabis users are also at risk if driving “high”, meaning under the influence of drugs, doubling their risk of being involved in a crash .
To conclude, the best way to avoid an accident is to be alert, well rested, and focused on the road.
