Are you Texting And Driving Right Now?

by Categorized: Government, mobile phones Date:

If you are driving, stop. Stop reading, not driving. That leaves another 659,999 people who are texting, driving or other wise distracted at this very minute.

That’s according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The NHSTA study said a population¬† roughly the size of the city of El Paso, Texas is not paying attention at the wheel, right now.

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, so celebrate by putting the phone down.
