Dangers of Texting & Driving
Texting while driving can cause three types of distractions: visual, manual, and cognitive. Visual distractions take your eyes off the road, manual distractions take your hands off the wheel, and cognitive distractions take your mind off the primary task of operating a vehicle.
According to the National Safety Council, if a driver travels at a speed of 55 mph while spending five seconds sending or reading a text message, they have traveled the length of an entire football field. Texting while driving increases the chance of being involved in a collision by more than 20 times.
Unfortunately, many drivers overestimate their multitasking abilities. And despite laws banning handheld cellphone use and texting while driving, drivers continue to engage in this risky behavior, thus endangering themselves and everyone else on the road.
