Safety features in vehicles could be causing more auto accidents

Many newer vehicles now come with features that are intended to help drivers stay safe and lower the chance of a collision. Automatic braking systems and other driver-assist features are tools that are supposed to make the road safer, but in reality, they could be playing a role in many distraction-related auto accidents. Delaware drivers may feel impervious to dangers when they use these features, causing them to remove their attention from the road.

Be especially careful at Delaware intersections

If you've been a licensed driver in Delaware for some time, certain driving maneuvers may come easy to you. This might seem like a good thing; however, there's a downside. When you get used to driving, some tasks behind the wheel become more like habits, which means you might not be as focused on the road as you should be. You might be more prone to distracted driving when this happens.

Auto accidents caused by distraction: Is it getting worse?

A driver's sole responsibility is to keep the focus on the task at hand. Drivers who are distracted are significantly more likely to be in auto accidents that leave others injured or killed. Mostly because of phones and technology, such as in-car features, distracted driving is one of the biggest safety concerns on Delaware roads and across the country.
