According to a study conducted by ABRAMET (Associação Brasileira de Medicina de Tráfego, Brazilian Association of Traffic Medicine), the use of cell phones while driving is the third top cause of traffic fatalities in Brazil. On the other hand, DETRAN shows that about 94% of road accidents are caused by recklessness and distraction, mainly due to the use of cell phones when driving.
Drivers are constantly texting messages via WhatsApp, browsing Facebook feed, viewing photos and stories on Instagram, Googling, answering / making calls, or choosing the song they would like to hear on Spotify, Apple Music, or other platforms.
These simple and routine practices while driving can cause drivers to take their eyes off the road. According to some data by DETRAN, the simple act of sending a text message while driving increases the chance of an accident by up to twenty-three times. And when a driver makes calls, the brain activity drops by 37%.
Thus, in addition to putting his life at risk, the driver is also risking the lives of other people and / or the cargo he is transporting.
Have you ever imagined everything that could happen in fifty meters without looking at the road? A pedestrian may be crossing the street, a ball or other object may cross the path, a car may suddenly brake … There are countless situations that can cause accidents within just 2 or 3 seconds of distraction.
In Brazil, fines ranging from R$ 200 to R$ 250, and up to seven points added to the driver’s license are some of the measures adopted to address this problem. Government also promotes awareness campaigns and recommends that companies emphasize the importance of drivers staying focused on the road.
