Traffic Accidents in Hawaii
Hawaii is a wonderful place with beautiful scenery and kind people. Many people come here to vacation and soak up the sun while experiencing everything our wonderful islands have to offer.

In 2018, over 14,000 auto accidents were reported that caused injuries to thousands and took the lives of hundreds of people.
Distracted driving is currently the main contributing factor in the majority of auto accidents throughout the United States and in the state of Hawaii. Driver distraction can be displayed in numerous ways, however, most often, individuals choose to look at their phone screens instead of the road in front of them. Driving while distracted is extremely dangerous and can risk the lives of everyone involved. On average, over 400,000 car wrecks take place in the United States per year due to the actions of distracted drivers.
