Distracted driving includes things like talking on the phone, texting, reading emails and eating.

Texting requires all three, making it particularly dangerous. Distracted driving includes things like talking on the phone, texting, reading emails and eating. There are three main types of distraction: visual (not looking at the road), manual (not having your hands on the steering wheel) and cognitive (not thinking about driving).

Texting requires all three, making it particularly dangerous.

The danger of texting while driving is three-fold.

The popularity of mobile devices has had some unintended and even dangerous consequences.

We now know that mobile communications are linked to a significant increase in distracted driving, resulting in injury and loss of life. Distracted driving endangers life and property and the current levels of injury and loss are unacceptable. The consequences you’ll face for texting and driving are similar to those you’d get for another one of the most serious driving offenses: DUI.

While texting and driving is largely associated with teens, many parents and adults in general do it as well. No one, not even an “experienced” driver can safely drive while distracted. Technology to the Rescue.

While technology is a root cause in distracted driving, it can also play a big part in the solution. Previous academic studies—much more scientific than ours—conducted in vehicle simulators have shown that texting while driving impairs the.

  • Unfortunately i get call outs for this as our team are based next to 3 highways and it often is a fatality. It’s no fun having to cut cars open. At the end of the day we are human too and somehow when we go home at the end, we have to switch off.

  • Agreed. Not only is texting and driving illegal here (Canada), it’s my pet peeve (okay, it’s using a phone in general, but you get the idea) when I’m behind the wheel of car. As a passenger, if the driver wants to SMS or call, I’ll offer to do it, or ask that they drop me off. You are responsible for your own life, and eventually, the driver will get it that it’s too dangerous and annoys the passengers

  • while I understand the message I really don’t get who in their right mind would just pull their car out in front of another like that almost like they wanted to get hit or something. Was the driver in that car drunk???

  • honestly all sadness aside this pisses me off the amount of them that said they do it out of being bored, as someone who lost a friend to a driver on their phone from a bike accident I continue to see drivers on there phone and what makes it worse is they smile while you look at them using it, my friend was killed because a driver looked down at his phone for 1 second, literally 1 second it’s not some kind of joke till this day seeing drivers on there phone disgusts me if they would have known what happened or lost someone the same way its heartbreaking how people have no self care towards others

  • You car weighs 4000 pounds. What do you think 4000 pounds feels like hitting, say, another 4000 pounds? It doesn’t feel great, you might hurt you knee damage property…. At 40 mph… try 65 and hitting a stoped 4000 lb car broken down on the road. Or maybe even a van with kids in it. Why? They ask. You tell them why, “I was texting, I’m sorry”.

    Drive safe.

  • No actually people do NOT lose their lives because someone is TEXTING, they use their lives because someone is NOT PAYING ATTENTION! I don’t text that often, because I’m an old fuck (welll, 29) I prefer actually talking on the phone to texting. However when i DO text, i drive at or below the speed limit and make sure I don’t need to make too many lane changes or do much beyond just staying in my lane. Its called “risk compensation”

  • This is why you never swirl in an intersection to miss a car that ran the red light.. especially not with a truck because you will just hit someone else.. the collision the head to head will hurt more and worse you will hit someone who did nothing wrong.

  • I’m working on being a firefighter and My Captain told me that he had to pull some kids legs out of a window not like a circle whole like the glass was literally stuck in his legs they had to cut the glass out of the car and then work on him there because he was losing alot of blood in his legs so that’s just something to think about while you are txting and driving

  • I’ll tell you why kid. Because this young chap is very much smarter than you’ll ever be. Perhaps when you have grown into a big boy and stop pretending to try and be a man you’ll get a bit more respect. Right now you sound as if your age has already passed your IQ. You are the sort who can only be described as a liabilty.
    Grow up.

  • I work in fire and road crash rescue. This is what we have to deal with at times. We try not to take our work home with us but sometimes we do. It has a big impact on emergency crews who deal with this too.

  • Wow this is sad. I don’t even understand why this is an epidemic, it shouldn’t be! Personally when I drive, I never use my phone, my phone is on silent. In a way I created my own car rule while driving. There is no phone. If more people can have “There is no phone” as a rule while driving, less accidents would happen. And people who use their phones texting while driving actually do terrify me on the road.

  • Im Happy This Has Happen, But What Will Happen To All The Cops Who Have Labtops, Cell Phones And Like A Million Other Things In There Car….SideNote: When Will Yall Ever Come To New Orleans, Show Yall A Good Time

  • I watched the full version my mom texts and drives so I’m gonna make a stupid face and make if both of her wallpapers then I’m gonna power off her phone, BOOM!!!

  • This scares me. My dad drives most of the time, and goes from place to place and he always and I mean ALWAYS uses his phone when he drives. And I’ve told him even my siblings told him that he shouldn’t be texting or using his phone and driving but he just does it. And I’m scared maybe one day he’s coming back from work and…uses his phone and something happens. I’ll do the best I can to make him stop.

  • I drive a commercial truck and as my seating position is higher i get to see all all the drivers. 90% of the people under 40 are using the phone all the time. I wonder what is the police doing about it to stop it??? F*** your snap and instagram you are all killers

  • I put my phone in my purse, and keep it there until I reach my destination. If a call may be pressing, I pull into a gas station to take my call. Otherwise, it just has to wait. I don’t like multitasking while I drive.

  • This isn’t enough.
    Something has to be done.teenage shouldn’t even be allowed to have a phone an car.
    The can have the phone,but no car.are have a car but no phne.

  • I feel no need to be creative nor do I think that “oxygen thief” is all that original/creative. But, if you say so, then I guess it is. Thank you for your compliment, regardless of its level of sincerity.

  • How arrogant of you to endanger the lives of my friends and family because you don’t have the self-control to wait until you’re not driving to send a text. Selfish.

  • I watched this video a couple of months or a year ago, today Jacy Good and her husband were at my school, only thirty minutes through when Jacy showed the video did I recognize her. Her story absolutely broke my heart the first time I heard it, the second time, today in person, I heard every detail and event and it broke my heart once over again.

    Thank you for sharing your story Jacy, I am so incredibly glad you survived and fought for your life.

  • You know that feeling When your mom is the one that uses her phone EVERY time she’s in the car. so you tell her to stop because you don’t want to burn to death in a car, but then get yelled at for “disrespecting” and gilt tripped into thinking that telling her to stop was wrong?………..you know that feeling?

  • Thats a stupid situation and its their fault if their being that dumb and you drive off the road for that. Texting is what A lot of people do so the government should start with that situation because its rational and easily handled by a law.

  • me as being a car crash addict when i was young, i clicked on this and i immeadiately got to my mom and begged her to close that because it popped up (she was talking to the phone and she didn’t hear me and the volume was wayyy uppp)

  • Whenever I see people using thier phones at a stoplight, I yell at them to get off the f*****g phone, it is even illegal where I live and police actually try to find those people sometimes.

  • It’s the same as looking for a radio station, calling someone, or looking for a song on your iPod/MP3. If you take your eyes off the road for more than one second, you are in trouble. This is just a different distraction and people are taking their eyes off the road too long. That’s it. I have texted for over 12 years with not one accident. COMMON SENSE.

  • I honestly don’t understand how one can feel comfortable texting for 11 seconds before looking back at the windshield. I’m not saying you should text and drive, but at least look up every 2 or 3 seconds. This is not the living room in your house where your eyes are just gazing upon your phone screen for more than 10 seconds. People drive and dead ass be looking only on their phone. Makes no sense. Like how is that comfortable for you.

  • Bad Habits of Texting and Driving??

    Experttexting believes that it is our responsibility to not only cater to all your texting needs but also to spread awareness on important issues, which is why we have complied a list of hacks to overcome this habit: https://expt.io/NAAvBZ

  • We’ve seen an increase in accidents due to texting while driving. The interesting thing is it isn’t just young drivers but in most cases it is the experienced driver who thinks they can handle it because they have been driving for years. This is a great video and I highly recommend it for everyone.

  • There’s some fact behind your comment. But since not everyone on the road can multi-task, why risk it? For me, texting can wait till I stop. *shurgs* It’s really not that big of a deal to text while driving.

  • so they have some 40 year old wearing sunglasses who doesnt know how to text and can barley read do the test? texting and driving is only dangerous if youre retarded. like if you crash reading a text that says “lol” or w/e is on the commercials you shouldnt drive at all because how will you ever read a road sign?

  • Nearly 390,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving.

    1 out of every 4 car accidents in the United States is caused by texting and driving. That’s some fucking scary shit right there

  • They should make a video like this discussing the dangers of cigarettes so many of my Friends do it and it’s so heartbreaking I have lost a few relatives coz of it

  • I said “negligence” which in this case is brought from people texting. Just because you may attempt to safely text while driving doesn’t mean others will. You could be texting at a low speed and what not and someone who doesn’t use risk compensation can crash into you due to their negligence. People always say “Well when I do it…”, but they don’t understand that anyone can become a victim of someone else’s negligence.

  • So he was drunk and texting? This is a terrible experiment. You don’t test two variables at once…anyone with half a brain knows that.

  • If it’s so dangerous, then they should stop making and selling cell phone car chargers, because if you charge your cell phone in your car, you’re much more likely to use it in your car than in your house.

  • Never been a text and drive person but sometimes I change song…a good way I found to minimize that is choosing a playlist before driving so then it will cover enough time not to have to look down. This story is truly heartbreaking.

  • It’s impossible to watch this without crying…I watched now 3 times and I can’t stop…this is not fair people are selfish
    Yes that includes me I don’t drive and text but I’m always on my phone texting family etc and when that happens I don’t take note of my surroundings…this can happen to anyone driving or walking.

  • I hope for the People that have no discipline they would at least get a device or radio that syncs with the phones that way they take calls hands free.
