Three Seconds, Everything changes!
“In a split second, you could ruin your future, injure or kill others, and Tear a hole in the heart of everyone who loves you,” said Sharon Heit. Wouldn’t you rather wait to send that text until you get home instead of right away and ruining the rest of your life? So many teenagers, adults, and elderly people are engaged in distracted driving and so many of them potentially take the risk of hurting or injuring themselves along with anyone else on the road just because they couldn’t wait. NO phone call, text, food, or song is more important than your life. Put down your phone while in the car and think about yours and everyone else’s life. Here are a little but of facts about distracted driving. Distracted driving accounts for approximately twenty-five percent of all motor vehicle crash fatalities. It only takes three seconds after a driver’s attention has been diverted from the road for a crash to occur. Both of these quotes come from teensafe.com. Your love ones strongly encourage you to put down anything that has the potential to distract you from driving, so you do not end up in the twenty-five percent who lost their lives due to three seconds of distracted driving.
