The statistics for people involved  in accidents who are texting while driving are frightening. 

Approximately 23% of accidents occurred while people were using a cell phone. 

Text messaging can increase the risk of an accident by 22 times. 

Texting causes approximately 1,600,000 accidents per year.

Texting causes approximately 300,000 accidents with injuries.

Texting is the major cause of accidents by teenagers.

Other interesting statistics

     Dialing a cell phone increases the risk of an accident by 280%

    Talking or listening increases the risk of an accident by 130%

     Reaching for a phone increases the risk of an accident by 140%


Stay safe and stay off your cell phone or mobile device while driving.   You lose some level of concentration just by talking on the phone while driving, because you are concentrating on the conversation rather than  the road.

If you need to make a phone call, be safe.  Go to the side of the road, and stop to make the call
