This is a great video from Allstate Insurance illustrating the dangers of texting and driving. While we might find it funny, it isn’t that far from the truth and drama that goes on in a teenager’s life. When we are engrossed in a conversation our mind isn’t really processing what we see in front of us because the function is being split by focus on the conversation, therefore we may not react to a situation or even see a potential hazard if we are engaged in these other activities. It is important for ALL drivers to stay focused on the road and distracted driving has become a huge problem on our roadways. We highly recommend talking to your teens about texting or using their cell phones while driving. Might want to check out this diagram that details the dangers of texting while driving.
