EVERYDAYmore than 9 people are killed and more than
1,153 people are injured in crashes that reportedly involve

distracted driving

taking your eyes off the road

taking your hands off the wheel
taking your mind off driving

Let us break it
down for you:

Distractions include texting, using a cell phone or smartphone, eating and drinking, talking to passengers, grooming, reading (maps included), using a navigation system, watching a video and even simply adjusting your music.

Approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones
or manipulating electronic devices while driving

5 SECONDS
is the average time your
eyes are off the road while
texting. When traveling
at 55 mph, that’s
enough time to
cover the length
of a football field
blindfolded.
