This infographic covers a hot topic, texting while driving. As mobile phones have become an everyday accessory (and practical necessity), their capabilities have gone beyond calling to allow for texting, emailing and internet surfing. Have you ever sat at a stoplight and counted the number of drivers who are talking on the phone?
Now imagine how many are taking their eyes off the road to text – and how many of them are inexperienced teen drivers. The statistics show that texting is more dangerous than talking on the phone, speeding and even drunk driving, as the infographic illustrates. Yet so many people text while driving and assume it isn’t as dangerous.
Laws are coming up faster than a police cruiser in the rear view mirror to stop texting behind the wheel and it is a good thing; we can’t sit by idly while careless drivers continue to cause car accidents because they couldn’t put down their mobile phones. Play it safe and put the mobile phone down while driving, or you may need a good traffic attorney, a doctor or a hearse. Infographic designed by Big Oak Studios
