Over 300.000 car crashes take place every year in New York State, 40% of them leading to severe injuries or even death. There are many causes for these accidents like aggressive driving or driving under the influence, but the most common of them all is distracted driving. For example, did you know that if you spend 5 seconds sending a text while driving at 55 miles/hour, you will go over the same distance as the length of a football field without looking at the road?
