The Society for Risk Analysis has conducted a situation-based analysis of drivers and distracted behavior. The results allowed researchers to uncover four profiles of drivers who are most strongly inclined to use their phones while behind the wheel. California residents will want to know what these profiles are because they can help target distracted driving campaigns.
Commercial motor vehicle drivers in California will want to prepare themselves for the annual Brake Safety Week held by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance. In fact, all drivers should keep their brakes in good working order; improperly installed or poorly maintained brakes will increase stopping distance and raise the risk for accidents, especially rear-end collisions. The CVSA has scheduled its event for September 16 to 22.

According to some experts, one reason for the increase might be distraction. What might be surprising to hear is that both drivers and pedestrians are exhibiting distracted behavior that results in accidents.
