It’s almost unimaginable – people who would never think of closing their eyes while they drive at 55 MPH on the highway are doing the functional equivalent when sending or reading a text message. Why? On average, someone takes just under five seconds to send or read a text – in that time you’ve traveled 300 feet without looking at the road.
Put this another way – for people who would never think about drinking and driving – texting while driving has the same impairment on your driving ability as a blood-alcohol content of 0.8% – the legal limit. In short, it’s like driving drunk.
