Driving is a Dangerous Activity

Death cCossesDriving a motor vehicle in the United States is the single most dangerous activity that we participate in on a daily basis. Every time we get into a motor vehicle there is the potential of being killed or maimed. A son, a daughter, a parent or a friend could be killed in a split second, because they took their eyes off the road, or took a chance, or didn't have the experience to handle an unexpected driving event.

If a vehicle drifts just five to six feet, it could result in a head-on collision; over 40,000 people die yearly in motor vehicle crashes! Many of these are young people.
