What do you do when you receive a text while driving, or want to send one yourself? Do you wait until you’ve arrived safely to your destination or do you convince yourself that a quick glance is okay? You’re an experienced driver, so texting with one hand while keeping the other on the steering wheel is fine, right? Nothing could go wrong.
That’s the attitude of countless drivers, which is why 1.6 million car crashes are due to cell phone use. That’s 64% of all the road crashes in the United States. Reading a text message while driving successfully distracts a driver for a minimum of five seconds each time. The average speed in the US is about 55mph, so taking five seconds to read a text in this time means that the driver travels the length of a football field without looking at the road. What’s even more alarming is that teen drivers have a 400% higher chance of being in a car crash when texting while driving than adults!
These accidents and deaths are preventable. Laws are in place, but it’s not enough to keep drivers focused on the road rather than their phone. CELLslip© can help with distraction by blocking calls, text messages and wifi connections through the use of RFI shielding material. When the phone is removed from the CELLslip©, all voicemails, text messages and notifications will appear within seconds.
