Police are seeing a lot of crashes and they believe that distracted drivers on their cell phones are the main cause of rear end collisions. Your fine for distracted driving would be $83.
An officer talks about a young girl who was killed the day before her graduation because of a one second decision to pick up her phone and send a text while she was driving.
Steff Demaya, a crash survivor and mother of 4, lost her foot in a car collision because she was distracted while driving. She says that she could’ve just waited to send that last text.
On average, 9 people die and 1,100 people are injured every day due to distracted driving. Texting is not the only distraction, either. Talking on your phone can be just as distracting to drivers.
Just because your car may provide ways to easily text, call or tweet does not mean you should while you are behind the wheel.
