Texting And Driving Statistics

The cellphone is one of the few gadgets that affects our day-to-day lives. We use it for traveling directions, communication, and entertainment. We’ve grown so attached to these devices, some suffer from “Nomophobia” an irrational fear of being out of mobile contact.

So it’s no surprise that when we hear our phone ding, that we instinctively reach out to see what the notification is.  That instinctive reaction can be a dangerous distraction when you’re driving, especially when you’re texting a friend or family member.  Take a look at some of the accident statistics below.
