Distracted driving can take on many forms, including texting, eating, putting on makeup, talking with passengers and simply failing to put attention on the road ahead. Many of these accidents are rear-end collisions, and the vehicle ahead is slammed into, as the driver has not realized moving traffic has come to a stop until it is too late. A rear-end accident can have very serious consequences, as the driver and passengers ahead, even when airbags deploy, are thrown into violent motion. The vehicle can be forced into traffic, and be impacted by cross-traffic or pushed into stationary objects such as light posts or trees.
