Don’t ____ & Drive:

Distracted Driving is Deadly!

Each day, more than 15 people are killed and more than 1,200 people are injured as the result of a distracted driver being behind the wheel.1 Multi-tasking is a trait that we all must adapt to in order to survive in as our society continues to become more and more fast paced. The more we try to do at once, the more we are driven to distraction

Every time you get behind the wheel,  you will be faced with many opportunities for distractions, such as eating a cheeseburger, texting a boyfriend, or surfing the radio stations. The act of texting takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds.  At 55 MPH, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field…. blindfolded.2  A few seconds may not seem like a lot of time, but that extra second can mean the difference between safety and tragedy for any driver.
