No Cell Phone Zone
Would you use your cell phone while driving if you knew...
*In 2009, 5,474 people were killed on U.S. roadways and an estimated additional 448,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes as a result of distracted driving?
*Of those people killed in distracted-driving-related crashes, 995 involved reports of a cell phone as a distraction?
*Studies show that driving while using a cell phone is the equivalent to driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08, the legal definition for drunken driving?
*Cell phone users are 4 times more likely to crash?
Now You Know!
One out of every six drivers in school zones is distracted by the use of cell phones, eating, drinking, smoking, reaching behind, grooming and reading. For the safety of our students, please reduce the risk and SILENCE your cell phones while driving.
