Driving distractedly is extremely dangerous as it impairs a driver’s ability to pay attention to the road and make quick decisions while driving. Distracted driving is a factor in 18% of all fatal accidents. A common example of driving distractedly is texting while driving. Out of all tasks a driver could carry out on their phone, texting puts a driver at the greatest risk of a crash. Drivers who text and drive are at a crash risk 23 times greater than drivers who do not text and drive. In order to prevent accidents and fatalities, do not drive distractedly.
