With the rapid increase in smartphone users in and across the US, distracted driving has become a concern in terms of traffic safety. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), in 2018, 2841 individuals died in car accidents due to distracted driving. However, in the same year, approximately 276,000 people were injured because of distracted drivers, while distracted-affected property damage only collisions totaled to 659,000.
Motorcycles inherently are more dangerous in comparison to cars. They account for only 3 percent of all registered vehicles with nearly 9 million motorcycles on the roads in and across the country. Yet they have a higher number of accidents resulting in fatalities and severe injuries.
