Distracted driving is increasingly becoming a national epidemic taking away the lives of many. This mainly affects teenagers and young adults, perceived as “reckless” drivers compared to those of older age. Young drivers can easily become distracted by loud music, talking to passengers in the car, and most frequently, texting and talking on the phone. Trying to divide attention to two or more events, like driving and texting, will result in poor judgement on the road and ultimately life threatening accidents. It’s estimated that drivers under the age of twenty have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes. On average, drivers will take five seconds to take their eyes off the road to text, and when driving at 55 miles per hour, five seconds is enough to cover a football field. Because of this, 200,000 crashes a year are due to texting and 1.4 million crashes are due to phone calls.
