Kanetix.com Explores The Similarities & Differences Between Canadian and U.S. Distracted Drivers

Share Article

Research shows that distracted driving is a serious problem in Canada as well as the United States. But, are American drivers really twice as distracted as Canadian drivers or just twice as honest?



There’s no question distracted driving has become a major issue on roads

oday, Kanetix.com examines the similarities and differences between distracted drivers in the United States and their counterparts in Canada.

In a recently published article titled Distracted Driving: Canadian versus U.S drivers, Kanetix.com compared some of the findings between a HealthDay Poll regarding distracted drivers in the U.S, and a Kanetix.ca Poll regarding distracted drivers in Canada.

Key points:

  •     About 39 percent of Canadian motorists that took part in the poll admitted they consume beverages or food while behind the wheel, compared to about 86 percent of drivers in the U.S. who said they consume food or beverages while driving.
  •     Thirty-seven percent of American drivers admit to having engaged in texting (cell phone use), while in Canada only 18 percent said they routinely use cell phones when operating a vehicle.

According to findings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving has become a significant cause of injuries and auto deaths annually. As such, a number of campaigns and studies have sought to educate motorists of the risks involved with allowing themselves to be distracted from the road for even a moment.

“There’s no question distracted driving has become a major issue on roads,” said Janine White. “Our aim at Kanetix.com, is to bring this to the attention of US motorists, particularly for those that might not understand the consequences of driving distracted.”

Not only does driving distracted increase the chance of accident, but also the likelihood of increased insurance rates. As a motorist has a series of accidents on their driving record, they may be identified as ‘high risk’ according to their insurer. Thus, getting proper insurance coverage becomes an exceedingly difficult task – made all the more challenging by simply not paying close attention behind the wheel.
