A Visual Guide: How Dangerous Is Distracted Driving?

In this day and age when most people are increasingly becoming reliant on their phones to instantly communicate, a new concern is brooding. Texting while driving is now causing five times as many accidents as drunk driving does. Overall, it now accounts for a fourth, or 25 percent, of all motor vehicle crashes and 400,000 physical injuries.

In one incident in Minnesota, the innocent lives of a father of three and his 10-year-old daughter were lost after a 17-year-old driver ran a red light because he was texting. The effect of this story is only magnified by the fact that it’s only one in thousands. Every year, distracted driving through texting claims the lives of 1.5 million people.

A safe road environment is everyone’s responsibility. Help contribute to road and pedestrian safety by spreading awareness on the real dangers of distracted driving. The following infographic is rich with useful data and statistics that can help shift perspective on the true risk of operating your handheld phone while you’re behind the wheels.

Not limited to figures, it also includes tips on how to break the dangerous habit of texting while driving. Read on and share with your friends and loved ones to advocate for road safety.
