Why is distracted driving such a big issue in South Dakota?

There are a lot of reasons why distracted driving is such a big deal in South Dakota. Often, you may hear people talk about:

  • The increasing use of smartphones and mobile technology
  • The demands of “always on” technology - both at work and at home
  • Busy lives that require constant multitasking

All of these reasons contribute to the overall problem. Unfortunately, one of the biggest factors is that many drivers just simply are not aware that they’re distracted. Distracted driving is a complicated issue, but everyone can pay more attention behind the wheel and take safety seriously.
