Distracted driving killed nearly 5,500 people last year and injured 500,000 more. While these disturbing statistics alone should help people think twice about picking up a cell phone on the road, the stories behind the statistics are much more moving. Distraction.gov, the official U.S. Government website for distracted driving has an ongoing video series called “Faces of Distracted Driving”, that is quite moving. Below are a few of the latest stories. These stories may seem far off, but they are very real. They, just like the rest of us, didn’t think they were going to be involved in an auto accident. Please think twice before using a cell phone on the road, and try to be as aware as possible of the drivers around you.
