Distracted Statistics
  • The National Safety Council estimates so far this year (Oct 8, 2013) in the United States that there have been almost 795,000 crashes involving drivers using cell phones and texting.  That means every 30 seconds a crash occurs where the driver is either on his/her cell phone or texting.


  • A Carnegie Mellon study shows driving while using a cell phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37%. 


  • Using a cell phone while driving - whether it's hand-held or hands-free - delays a driver's reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of 0.08 percent, according to the University of Utah.


  • Virginia Tech conducted a study and found that sending or receiving a text takes the driver's eyes away from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent (at 55 mph) of driving the length of an entire football field - Blind!
