Last week, I came across a stat that made my stomach turn: Texting and driving is now the leading cause of death among teenagers. At least 3,000 teens die each year from accidents caused by texting and driving, and another 300,000 are injured. That’s 11 young lives every day. A full 58 percent of teens aged 18 admitted to texting while driving. Think about that—if you knew that more one out of every two drivers you passed was drunk, would you ever get on the road again? And it’s not just teens, either: Almost a third of adults admit to texting and driving.
Check out this infographic, and stay tuned—we’ll be talking much more about this trend, and what you can do to help reverse it.
