How many times have you seen someone on their cell phone while driving? If you have seen a good number of people using their cell phones while driving or have heard of the number of accidents caused by distracted drivers, you would be a little frightened every time you put that seat belt on. Auto-related accidents, injuries, and deaths are all increasing due to distracted driving. A Virginia study showed that as many as 8 out of 10 crashes are connected to distracted driving. If a phone call or text is really THAT important, consider pulling over to take the call or respond to the text.
All of these scenarios are really easy to snicker at, but to increase the safety of ourselves and everyone else we have to take things into our own hands. We have to be the change that we want to see. So instead of sharing all of the insane and absurd things that we have all encountered on the road, I will advocate you to put your cell phone, coffee, or burger down to focus on the road and help keep people safe.
