Your Baby's 13th Week of Life

Fact of the Week

Distraction is the cause of as many as 25 percent of the 6.5 million auto accidents each year. Drivers are often distracted by other activities, such as eating, picking up dropped objects, adjusting the radio or temperature controls or talking to other passengers or on cell phones. The Network of employers for Traffic Safety (NETS), analyzed data from traffic accidents to find that distracted driving caused as many as 4,000 accidents a day and cost more than $40 billion a year. The group recommends drivers avoid eating, drinking, talking on the phone or adjusting controls in heavy traffic. Drivers should also refrain from applying makeup or combing hair while driving.
