DID YOU KNOW?
Texting while driving increases the risk of accident 23.2 times over unimpaired driving
Texting while driving results in even longer response times than drunk driving
In the moments before a crash or near crash, drivers typically spend nearly five seconds looking at their mobile devices…enough time at typical highway speeds to cover more area than the length of a football field.
Texting behind the wheel is generational: 37% of drivers 18-27 admit to texting while driving, compared to 14% of 28-44 year olds and 2% of 45-60 year olds.
