Whether you're commuting to work or school, or piling into the minivan for a family vacation, driving a car is a regular part of life for most Americans. We spend so much time in our cars that they now feature Wi-Fi, satellite radio and even TV screens. Sometimes, the more familiar something gets, the more likely we are to let down our guard.
In driving, a momentary lapse of attention can have serious consequences. Traffic deaths increased measurably in 2016, and studies show that most traffic accidents come from human error, not weather or malfunctioning machinery. Drivers need to be more careful on the road, and drivers who were following safe driving practices shouldn't have to suffer for the mistakes of others.
