You take your eyes off the road only for a few moments to respond to a text, but all it takes is seconds to crash. A new national campaign called “It Can Wait” was recently launched to prevent young people from texting while driving. But it turns out that it’s not just teenagers who are texting while driving.
Here is a French public service announcement aimed towards those who feel they can drive and text.
The National Transportation Safety Board wants every state to ban all cell phones used by drivers — no texting, no talking, not even hands-free. But are cell phones more distracting than any of the other distractions inside our cars?
