Car accidents caused by distracted driving killed 3,477 people and injured another 391,000 across the U.S. in 2015, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Distracted driving includes driving while texting, emailing, talking on a cell phone, or otherwise using a device in the car that diverts your attention.
North Carolina law prohibits anyone from texting while driving, and for drivers under 18 to drive and talk on a cellphone at the same time.
Distracted driving has surpassed drunk driving as a cause of deaths and injuries from car accidents.
Data from cellphones can be obtained from cellular carriers, and sometimes from vehicle black boxes, but obtaining that information can be expensive and time-consuming.
