Distracted Driving: Why You Should Not Risk It

Distracted Driving Statistics

3,179 were killed and 431,000 were injured in 2014 alone via distracted driving car accidents. According to distraction.gov, distracted driving is “any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety.”

Although using maps, radios, eating, and talking are all considered distractions, the most hazardous one is texting. Texting requires visual focus, concentration, and taking your hands off the wheel. So, please, don't text and drive. It can wait.

The thing is, we can cite statistics at you all day long, but the real goal here is to prevent you from becoming one of those statistics. It’s a serious issue with a lot of arguments for and against, but distracted driving is just not worth the risk.

The good news is that you're never just a statistic here at I-70 Auto Service. Our customers are part of our extended family, and that is why we want you to understand just how much you mean to us. It breaks our hearts when we hear that one of our dear customers got hurt in a car accident. Please, be safe on the road so we can continue to see your smiling faces for many years to come.
