Hang up and Drive!!!
Drivers talking on cell phones are 4 times more likely to cause a crash than drivers who are not using their phones. That means - drivers using cell phones pose the same risk as drivers who are legally drunk.
Drivers who are sending text messages instead of talking are 8 times more likely to cause a crash. That's twice the risk of a drunk driver. The facts about texting while driving? OMG! Adults are guilty too. 34% of teens admit to texting while driving……… and 47% of adults confess to this unsafe practice.
For those of us who spend a lot of time in our cars, we need ot be especially careful!!!
Most drivers think they're great at multi-tasking and can safely use their phones while driving. Most drivers are deluding themselves. The odds you can safely use a cell phone while driving are about equal to the odds you will become the proud parents of twins, the odds you will receive a 100th birthday card, the odds you will receive a personal invitation to an IRS audit and the odds you can flip a nickel and have it come up heads six times in a row.
So please, "Hang up and Drive!!!"
