Stop the Texts. Stop the Wrecks

Help us spread the message of Texting and Driving Prevention with your friends and community. Visit http://www.stoptextsstopwrecks.org/

Nearly 500,000 young adults each year are injured due to distracted driving. What are some ways that you stop yourself from answering a text while driving?

Did you know that the average text takes your eyes off the road for nearly 5 seconds? When traveling at 55mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field.

If you're in a car with a friend who's driving and you see them texting, do you hesitate to tell them to stop?

Did you know that 49% of drivers with cell phones under 35 send or read text messages while driving? How will you stop texting and driving?

36% of teens say they've been involved in a near‐crash because of their own or someone else's distracted driving. Has this ever happened to you?

Please - If you're in a car with a friend who's driving and you see them #texting, do you hesitate to tell them to stop.
