Most people know that distracted driving practices lead to serious auto accidents and even severe personal injuries. But as you will learn in this video, texting while driving is actually even more dangerous than driving drunk.
The federal government recently reported that 17% of all fatal accidents involve some form of distracted driving. While cell phones are common culprits, other distractions include eating, drinking, using a navigation device, and talking to other passengers. The most dangerous activity by far is sending text messages—which causes a motorist to be even more impaired than a drunk driver.
