Don't text and drive.

Distraction is deadly.  

Each day in the United States, approximately 9 people are killed and more than 1,000 injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver (source). Car crashes are the #1 cause of workplace death, and the National Safety Council estimates 25% of crashes involve cellphones. 

Five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. At 55 MPH, that's enough time to drive the length of a football field. When you text and drive, you're not only endangering yourself, but also your passengers, other vehicles on the road and pedestrians.
