Distraction is a major problem, not just in South Dakota, but also across the country. Every day, innocent motorists are at risk of accident because drivers are engaged in various types of distracting activities, which include everything from looking at a phone to adjusting the radio.
A car accident is a scary time in anyone's life, and they are perhaps more concerning when children are involved. Nobody wants to see a child hurt, and kids themselves may have trouble understanding why an accident happened. This notion may be especially concerning for drivers in South Dakota and Iowa, where a higher percentage of children under the age of 15 die as a result of car crashes when compared to other states.
