DO YOU KNOW WHAT DISTRACTIONS CAN CAUSE WHILE DRIVING?

For many, driving is a daily activity, not requiring much thought or consideration. However, the sad reality is that there are a thousand and one death records each day due to fatal car crashes. On average, 9 of these daily fatalities are related to distracted driving.

Each day in the Nigeria, approximately 50 people are killed and more than 1,000 injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver. Distracted driving is driving while doing another activity that takes your attention away from driving. Distracted driving can increase the chance of a motor vehicle crash.

Anything that takes your attention away from driving can be a distraction. Sending a text message, talking on a cell phone, using a navigation system, and eating while driving are a few examples of distracted driving. Any of these distractions can endanger the driver and others.

Texting while driving is especially dangerous because it combines all three types of distraction. When you send or read a text message, you take your eyes off the road for about 5 seconds, long enough to cover the length a football field while driving at 55 mph.
