There are two ways to get hit by distracted driving:
1. You literally are involved in a collision because of it, or
2. You get caught.
Both are painful, and both will cost you. Some of you already know this by experience, and if you’ve been in a collision because someone else was distracted, we are so sorry, especially if you or one of your passengers was injured. We tend to think that “It won’t happen to me,” but when your luck runs out, it’s not going to give you a heads up.
“But it’s only a few seconds! I’ve been driving for years.” According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration: “Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 90 km/h, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.” Now that’s a scary stat.
