Texting and driving. It can wait. No one should risk their lives or other people's because they can't wait.
Is texting and driving really that important to put your life at risk? Or other people's lives? Younger kids 15-19 have the highest rate or fatal car crashes due to texting and driving. According to a study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds the equivalent of driving blind at 55-mph for the length of an entire football field. In 2015, there were 551 people who were killed in distraction-affected crashes. That number shouldn't be that high. Technology has taken over this generations life.
