Risks increase when drivers take their eyes off the road

Most Arkansas motorists know that driving while being distracted can be dangerous. However, many drivers still take their eyes off the road in order to check their cellphones or adjust their sound systems. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers should not divert their attention away from the road for more than two seconds. Researchers in a recent study conducted by the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety have noted that within that time span, a motorist who is driving at 70 mph will travel approximately 200 feet.

Car accidents are the main cause of sternum fractures

The sternum is the long, flat bone shaped like a dagger that sits along the middle of the chest. It connects the ribs with cartilage to create the front of the rib cage. The function of the rib cage is protecting vital organs such as major blood vessels, lungs and the heart. Road users in Arkansas might not realize that fractures of the sternum most often occur in traffic collisions.
