It won’t happen to me. Statistics may show that 9 people die daily, More than 1,000 are injured. I won’t be one of them, though. What are the chances? Distracted driving is not that dangerous, really. I am a very good driver, a very good multitasker. A text only takes a moment and sending a snapchat just a few seconds. Traveling at 55 mph, my car will only travel the length of a football field. That’s not that long, and what would I hit anyway? It’s such a small risk. I couldn’t wait to respond LOL, but I do this all the time. I’m not putting anyone else in danger In 2015, over 3,000 people died because of distracted drivers. That same year, 391,000 people were injured. But I wasn’t one of them. What are the chances? I’ve never met someone who was killed by an email or injured by changing the radio station. Distracted driving isn’t deadly. Or so I thought. It would never happen to me, I thought. Until it did.
