Arizona has reported 741 car crashes that may have been caused by distracted driving in 2017, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
Quentin Mehr, a spokesman for the department, said distracted driving is simply “anything that takes your eyes off the road,” which includes texting, talking on the phone or even eating while driving.
“It can also be something as small as changing the radio station or changing your air conditioning setting,” Mehr said. “Those things that are taking your eyes off the road.”
