Texting and driving is the #1 killer of teens in America. Now is an especially important time to recognize the risks of texting and driving for teen drivers. In an era of constant Facebooking, Tweeting and photo sharing, where teens are using their mobile devices non-stop, it is critical to remind drivers about the dangers posed by this activity.
Texting and driving is one of the most dangerous activities on the road and has proven to be more dangerous than drunk driving -- drivers on mobile phones are more impaired than drivers with a .08 BAC.
The Texting Awareness Foundation urges you to watch the road, not your phone. As a parent, employer, teacher, or friend, spread the word and help us make America’s roads safer.
