Text Driving - What's the Big Deal?

TEXT DRIVING What's the Big Deal? Relatively Few teens see texting driving as a dangerous and/or potentially fatal activity In a recent survey conducted among 697 U.S. teens of 14-17 years of age who intend to have or already have a driver's license Only 36% of them agree that text driving could get them killed. Just 63% of the same teens agree they could get into an accident if they text and drive. 36% 63% Text Driving – THE FACTS An estimated 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2013. A 9% increase from the estimated 387,000 people injured in 2011 11% of all drivers under the age of 20 involved in fatal crashes were reported as distracted at the time of the crash For drivers 15-19 years old involved in fatal crashes, 21% of the distracted drivers were distracted by the use of cell phones At any given daylight moment across America, approximately 421,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving, a number that has held steady since 2010 Engaging in visual-manual subtasks (such as reaching for a phone, dialing and texting) increase the risk of getting into a crash by 3 times A quarter of teens respond to a text message once or more every time they drive 20% of teens and 10% of parents admit that they have extended multi-message text conversations while driving When people text drive, they look away from the road a staggering 400% more often than those driving with no distractions - an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent -at 55 mph- of driving the length of an entire football field, blind!
