Dont Text And Drive And Get Instant Low Quote Insurance In Northglenn
Posted by Leinweber Insurance Agency on
Everyone is always in a rush to get somewhere these days causing them not to be as aware of others while driving. Many people know that talking on the phone, texting and doing other things like putting on make up or eating while driving causes accidents, but people continue to do them. Every year about 6,000 deaths and 1 million injuries are caused by distracted drivers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that 23% of accidents involve cell phones. They are helpful, entertaining, and fun to use, but they are also dangerous to others and to yourself if they are used at the wrong time.
Driving is a privilege which can be taken at any time if it is abused. A DUI is one of the leading reasons people lose their driver’s license and the leading cause of fatal accidents. The penalties for having a DUI vary from state to county. Most places all have one penalty in common and that is that on the 2nd DUI you must serve jail time. I can confidently say that jail is a place where we all know no one wants to go. Do you think that eventually driving while texting or using your cell phone will have serious penalties like a DUI? Well they just might, since the percent of accidents caused by people being distracted with cell phones continues to rise. Be a safe driver and wait until a stop light to use your phone or pull over on the side of the road, you never know whose life you could be saving.
