Don’t Text and Drive
The Evidence is Overwhelming
Texting and driving don’t mix:
- Each day in the U.S., an average of eight people die and 1,160 are injured in crashes that involve a driver distracted by their mobile phone.
- The National Safety Council reports that mobile phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year; 330,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving.
- Texting while driving is six times more likely to cause an accident than driving drunk.
