Engaging in activities that take your focus away from the primary task of driving can endanger you, passengers, and bystanders.
Distracted driving is on the rise, with texting while driving being a major contributor. Texting while driving is especially dangerous because it causes you to take your hands off the wheel and your eyes (and mind) off the road. On average, your eyes are off the road for 4.5 seconds to read or send a text. At 55 mph, that's the equivalent of driving the length of a football field blindfolded.
Driver Awareness and Safety Training includes additional resources and information on how to help combat distracted driving.
