Five Seconds: Don’t Text and Drive PSA

When you text and drive, you put yourself and others at risk. The average time it takes to answer a text is five seconds. At 55 miles per hour, that’s like driving the length of a football field…with your eyes closed.

Reading a text takes your eyes off the road, your mind off the
task of driving, and sometimes both hands off the wheel.

No one wants to be responsible for injuring another. Most people agree that texting and driving is dangerous, but do it anyway. We think it won’t happen to us, but statistics don’t lie.

Don’t be a statistic. It can wait. Don’t text and drive.
