Brain injuries and portable brain scanners

People in Oklahoma who have a brain injury will likely have one of two types. An acquired brain injury is an injury that occurs during birth. Common causes of this type of brain injury include tumors, electric shock, lightning strikes, stroke and anoxic or hypoxic brain injuries. People can also sustain a traumatic brain injury, which is a change in brain function that is caused by an external force.

Daydreaming linked to most distracted driving accidents

Oklahoma residents may be aware that the increase in distracted driving accidents has largely been blamed on the proliferation of smartphones and other electronic devices, but a study released by Erie Insurance suggests that drivers who daydream or become lost in thought while behind the wheel may be a far more serious road safety hazard. The Pennsylvania-based insurer determined that distraction was the cause of about 10 percent of America's road fatalities over the last five years, but cellphone use was cited as the distracting influence only 14 percent of the time.

The truth about distracted driving

If a person in Oklahoma does anything while in a vehicle to take his or her focus off of the road, it is considered distracted driving. For instance, if a person is eating, drinking or on a cellphone, that driver is not fully focused on the task of driving safely. Those who send or read text messages will take their eyes off of the road for five seconds.
