We all want to feel safe in our vehicles. Unfortunately, nothing can negate the fact that we drive around multi-ton metal behemoths at break-neck speeds. To ensure our safety, we need to make sure we put all of our focus into driving. This means that you can’t text and drive; if you don’t look at the road, you can’t avoid collisions. Here, we’ll go over some texting and driving facts.
Texting While Driving:
- Most drivers in the world support the prohibition of texting while driving.
- 1.6 million wrecks a year get reported in association with cell phone usage according to the National Safety Council.
- While driving 55 miles per hour, if you take your eyes off of the road for just 5 seconds, you travel the whole distance of a football field.
- 11 teen deaths get reported daily from texting and driving collisions.
