9 people are killed every day by distracted driving. At any given time more than 600,00 drivers are on the phone. You've seen it. I've seen it. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration keeps statistics on it.
Here are the Big 3 distractions:
- Visual (taking your eyes off the road)
- Manual (taking your hands off the wheel)
- The Mind (taking your attention away)
Texting distracts by all three. As mobile devices become more and more a part of our daily lives we all must exercise self-discipline and we all must be aware of other drivers on the road.
