According to the IBC (insurance bureau of Canada) distracted driving surpasses drunk driving as the number one road safety concern in Canada.
Consider these facts.
A. Nearly 80% of collisions and 65% of near-collisions involved some form of driver inattention up to three seconds prior to the event.
B. A driver is 23X more likely to be involved in a collision if texting while driving and 4X more likely to be involved in a collision if talking on a cellphone (hand-held or hands-free) while driving.
C. When distracted while driving, you may fail to see up to 50% of the available information in your driving environment. You may look but not actually see what is happening.4
DISTRACTED DRIVING is the same as risky driving. Do you think it’s as bad as impaired driving
