Smartphones are everywhere; they provide everything we could want to know about our world at a touch of a button.
But when you’re touching that button or looking down at the screen while you’re driving, you could be putting yourself and others at risk.
Distracted driving could cause injury or lead to loss of life; therefore, it is important to be attentive while on the road, and to avoid any unnecessary distractions that could negatively impact others.
Much like people who get behind the wheel when impaired by alcohol, but much less of a social stigma than being impaired, lots of people get behind the wheel and use their phones, text, etc, despite not using a phone with hands free capability being illegal in a number of states and texting while driving being illegal in virtually all states.
Many suspect that distracted driving is the reason that we’ve seen a HUGE uptick in fatalities with cars, despite safety systems in cars being safer than ever.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN WHILE DRIVING!!! The call you get isn’t more important than your life or the lives of people around you.
