This infographic was submitted to us by the folks at McIntyre Law. Here is what they had to say about their infographic:

McIntyre Law researched distracted driving statistics and laws nationwide and discovered some alarming information about driver safety. Although laws banning cell phone use while driving are on the rise, distracted driving deaths are not decreasing. Research revealed in this infographic suggests distracted driving is more of a problem than is reported.

Because drivers have control over whether or not they become distracted, this is one of the easiest types of motor vehicle accidents to avoid. As knowledge about the dangers of distracted driving increases, McIntyre Law hopes that distracted driving injuries and deaths will decrease.

I like the overall design of this infographic. The color scheme is very simple and pleasant, and the data visualization is pretty good. The only sections that could use more data visualization are the “common and growing problem” section and the one on distracted driving lawsuits. The dollar amounts could be represented visually and there could be a little more detail on each of the lawsuits. The entire “common and growing” section could be reworked to visualize the info on number of texts per person and the different types of distracted driving.

There are a couple of things that do not really work with this infographic. The heading is much too large and the image doesn’t really fit with the rest of the theme of the design (though it is appropriate for the subject of the infographic). The other image that doesn’t really work is the iPhone. It’s a creative way to display the data and it fits in with the theme, but it comes at the expense of another opportunity to data visualization rather than a bunch of text.

This infographic is headed in the right direction with the design, but needs to move away from all of the text and include more data visualization overall.
