Toledo, OH (PRWEB) April 12, 2013
USA Today recently reported that adults have been found to text more while driving than teenagers do. USA Today also explained that a survey was conducted by AT&T with results stating that nearly half of adults admit to texting while driving. Of the adults, 98-percent admit that they did not text and drive three years ago. There are now over 1,000 people injured every day on the roadways, and nine fatalities every day due to distracted driving.
According to The Ohio State University, the most dangerous form of distracted driving is texting while driving, as it requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver.
Attorney Charles Boyk supports the Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and he believes that we must tackle this issue head-on to keep those in the Toledo area safe on the roadways. “Our office is focusing on raising awareness around this issue, especially during the month of April since it is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. We feel that if we convince just one person to wait to answer that text or call while behind the wheel, we have made a difference.”
