US distracted driving fatalities top 3,300Mon, 08 Apr 2013
Imagine if you were to wake up tomorrow, flip on the morning news, and discover that during the previous night, 3,092 people veered over a cliff to their deaths.
Now, imagine if the following year, you were to wake up in the morning, flip on the morning news, and discover that this year, another 3,331 people died in a single night by plummeting off of the exact same cliff.
You would be even more shocked. But why? Because an extra 300 people died? Or because the problem was not solved after the first time?
This metaphor may be a bit morbid, but it is not that different from the feeling you should have felt on Friday, when the U.S. distracted driving fatalities top 3,300 originally appeared on Automotive News)
