It really can wait.
If you don’t believe a text just can’t be delayed until you are off the road, consider these statistics from the U.S. government website Distracted.gov:
Texting and driving has been an issue ever since mobile phones, but now with smart phones dominating the mobile device market, it is a concern that is bigger than ever before. With school in session, early morning and late afternoon rush hour will be busier than usual. You can always control your own actions, but you cannot control others. It is important to always stay extra cautious for the drivers who decide to make poor decisions on the open road.
Although many drivers believe it is “easy” to text and drive or to multi-task with anything while driving, anything can happen at any time. At INGEAR we urge you to remind your children and family members that texting and driving is a fatal decision, not only for themselves, but for others all around them on the road. Below, is a video about the effects that texting and driving has on someone on a personal level.
