And Another Thing…!

.Fact: Lots of people, especially younger ones, drive while they’re texting or talking on their cell phones. Research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA, 2009), indicates that though drivers of all ages use their phones while driving, young people age 20 and under are the worst offenders

Fact: As people age, their driving skills are compromised by limited mobility, slower reaction time, dimming eyesight, and dulled hearing.

Scary Thought: Just think of all the aging distracted drivers we’ll have in thirty or forty years! As today’s large group of young distracted drivers ages, we’ll find ourselves with a large group of old distracted drivers. Now that’s frightening!

Hang up and drive!!
