The Dangers of Texting & Driving
Did you know that texting while driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving? Accidents happen in the blink of an eye, and a driver who is looking at his or her phone will be unprepared to respond to a change in traffic, a road hazard, or even a traffic signal. At a speed of 55 mph, a driver who takes his or her eyes off the road for just 5 seconds – the average time it takes to send or read a text – will travel the length of a football field, essentially blind.
Texting while driving creates a recipe for disaster. Texting affects:
- Vision (the driver’s eyes are not on the road);
- Thought (the driver is thinking about the text, not driving); and
- Motor skills (one or both of the driver’s hands may be off the wheel).
