Fact # 1

Five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. When traveling at 55mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field. (2009, VTTI)

Fact # 2

A texting driver is 23 times more likely to get into an accident than a non-texting driver. (2009, VTTI)

Fact # 3

Of those killed in distracted-driving-related crashed, 995 involved reports of a cell phone as a distraction (18% of fatalities in distraction-related crashes). (NHTSA)

Out of sight, out of mind.

Silence is golden.

Find your app.

Designate a texter.
