Many drivers know about the dangers of texting while driving but do it anyway. They think they can defy the odds by just sending short texts or think it is okay to text because they lead busy lives or just don't care because they drive a crashworthy car and wear a seatbelt. There is nothing short about a text that takes your eyes off the road and imagine how busy you'll be without your car after its been in a crash and envision your crashworthy SUV crushing a crashworthy compact car.
Nearly 1/2 million people are injured each year by distracted driving. While our youngest drivers are most at risk, with 16% of all distracted driving crashes involving drivers under 20, distracted driving is an epidemic with over 800,000 vehicles being driven during daylight hours by someone using a cell phone.
