A new study has found there's a far more serious problem on the road than distracted driving...and it's blamed for as many as two million accidents.
According to research by the Society of Automotive Engineering, drivers either fail to use their signals when changing lanes or fail to turn the signals off-48% of the time!
When making an actual turn, the failure rate was found to be about 25% of the time.
That turns out to be two billion times a day drivers fail to use their signals...resulting in about two million roadway collisions a year...more than twice the accidents linked to distracted driving.
