The hustle and bustle of New York City is one of the things that attracts many people to its boroughs. However, the fast-paced way of life and influx of people also mean lots of vehicles on the road. Despite the best efforts of law makers and law enforcement, car crashes unfortunately remain a common occurrence.

A new smartphone app has been developed that aims to drastically cut down on the number of motor vehicle accidents that happen. By collecting data about drivers and their bad behaviors, the technology can use that information to predict where and when accidents likely to occur. Considering the fact that 93 percent of crashes are caused by human error, this data could prove to be vitally important.

One analysis of data collected through the app has already shown a correlation between high-accident areas and locations where people drive dangerously. While that may seem obvious, it gives experts keen insight on where their prevention efforts should be focused.

Perhaps not surprisingly, distracted driving was found to be a pervasive problem among drivers. Data showed that when people use their phones while driving, it is for an average of approximately three minutes. In addition, it was found that people use their phone on 88 percent of car trips they take.

Being injured in a car accident can have a serious impact on a person’s life. Medical bills can be expensive, especially if someone is unable to work due to their injuries. People who have been hurt in an accident involving a distracted driver may wish to contact an experienced attorney.
