Stupid is as Stupid Does! [VIDEO]
It seems that more and more when we get behind the wheel of a vehicle the last thing that we concentrate on is the driving. We are more interested in our smart phone, GPS, breakfast, lunch, or cup of Starbucks. Logically in a civilized society it would make sense that when you are steering a multi-ton weapon down the road you should give it the attention that it deserves. Check out these stats from Triple A:
-Distracted driving contributes to up to 8,000 crashes every single day – the facts speak for themselves:
-More than one million people have died in car crashes over the past 25 years in the U.S., with 33,788 lives lost in 2010 alone.
-Drivers spend more than half their time behind the wheel engaged in distracted behavior.
-Using a cell phone while driving quadruples your risk of crashing.
-Eating, smoking, adjusting music or rubbernecking while driving can be just as dangerous as texting, emailing or talking on a cell phone.
-Passengers are one of the most frequently reported causes of distraction, with young children being four times more distracting than adults and infants being eight times more distracting.
