In 2011, at least 23% of all automobile collisions involved cell phones. Your attention is taken away from the road for a minimum of 5 seconds when you text and drive; when driving at 55 mph, you would have covered the length of a football field in this amount of time. With the longest eyes-off-the-road time of all distracted driving activities, text messaging makes a crash up to 23 times more likely.
Texting while driving causes:
|1,600,000 accidents per year (National Safety Council)||11 teen deaths every day (Institute for Highway Safety Fatality Facts)|
|330,000 injuries per year (Harvard Center for Risk Analysis Study)||Nearly 25% of all accidents|
