Put it down – it can wait

Texting while driving takes your eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds. It’s like driving the length of a football field at 55 mph without looking.

Paying attention to the road instead of your phone can prevent injury or even death. In 2015, 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 injured in vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers. Put your phone down – it can wait.
