Texting while driving shutterstock_125980700 websize

According to the National Safety Council, 1,600,000 car accidents per year are caused by texting while driving. Nearly 25% of ALL car crashes are caused by texting and driving. Serious personal injury or even wrongful death can result from these types of accidents.

Texting while driving is about 6 times more likely to cause an accident than driving while intoxicated. It is the same as driving blind for 5 seconds at a time. If you are driving 55 miles per hour and texting, you would drive the length of a football field without looking at the road.

Texting and driving slows your brake reaction speed by 18%. There are 800,000 drivers at any given time across the country texting while driving.

Texting and driving is one of the riskiest things a driver can do.
