Did you know? If you text and drive, you’re 23 times more likely to have a car crash?
Texting while driving has become the number one driving distraction for many people. Drivers need to be aware of the dangers and keep their attention on the road. No matter how well you think you are at multi-tasking, your reaction time is severely delayed, with some studies reporting up to 18 percent. This could make a difference in yours, or someone else’s life.
With school starting back, distracted driving – including texting and driving –is more dangerous now more than ever. The safety risk increases when classes resume, as children walk through neighborhoods, bus stops and in school zones. Drivers have a lot to pay attention to in school zones, and there is never an occasion that justifies using a phone while driving. Stay on the lookout for pedestrians, pay attention with your eyes on the road with your hands on the wheel, and stop for pedestrians. One call or text can change everything.
