Eye Opening Stats On Distracted Driving

Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) data show an estimated 3,092 fatalities in distraction-affected crashes in 2010. The following 3 statistics shed light on why this number is so high.

1.     People who use hand-held devices while driving are 4 times more likely to get into a serious accident and injure themselves.

2.     Driving while using a cell phone reduces the amount of brain activity that is normally associated with driving by 37%.

3.     If a driver takes his/her eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds to view or send a text message or email while traveling at 55 m.p.h., it is the equivalent of having driven the length of an ENTIRE FOOTBALL FIELD. Blind.

Open your eyes. Curb distracted driving.
