Texting while driving

Post by Herobrine on Mon Jan 12, 2015 9:40 pm

The popularity of mobile devices has had some unintended and even dangerous consequences. We now know that mobile communications are linked to a significant increase in distracted driving, resulting in injury and loss of life.

   The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2012 driver distraction was the cause of 18 percent of all fatal crashes – with 3,328 people killed – and crashes resulting in an injury – with 421,000 people wounded.
   Forty percent of all American teens say they have been in a car when the driver used a cell phone in a way that put people in danger, according to a Pew survey.
   The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that text messaging creates a crash risk 23 times worse than driving while not distracted.
   Eleven percent of drivers aged 18 to 20 who were involved in an automobile accident and survived admitted they were sending or receiving texts when they crashed.


Even though there is no law against this people need to be aware that when they text it is possible to die in a car accident. If you are reading this and you text and drive please stop doing that, you are putting your life and whoever is in your car in danger.

Your text can wait, if you really need to text then pull to the side of the road (depending on where you are) and send your text when you are not driving.

Do you think texting is worth risking your life for? i do not. Hopefully you think the same


Here are some videos and news stories:
