Texting and Driving is a dangerous combination. Too many people have lost their lives because of it. “There are roughly 1,600,00 accidents per year because of texting and driving. You are about 6 times more likely to cause an accident texting and driving than while driving intoxicated.”* “One fourth of all teenagers respond to at least one text message every time they drive.
Twenty percent of teens and ten percent of parents report having multi-message conversations while driving. Pedestrians who text are four times more likely to look before crossing the street, cross in crosswalks, or obey traffic signals.
A texting pedestrian takes an average of two seconds longer to cross the street.”^ “On average it takes five seconds with your eyes off the road when driver’s experienced distractions. The distance covered in those five seconds of driving at just 55mph is equivalent to the length of a football field.”‘
