Today, technology is a huge part of the way we live. It is in our houses, at our jobs, in our cars, and in our pockets. As a result, cellphones, navigational maps, and other sources of technology have all become dangerous pieces of equipment for drivers everywhere. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that, on average, 15 people face fatal-injuries due to distracted driving accidents every day. In addition, roughly 1,200 people are injured every day in these types of crashes.
