When you get behind the wheel, there’s no such thing as multitasking. Your focus and eyes should be on the road, at all times.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, texting and driving is SIX times more dangerous than driving while intoxicated. One in four car accidents are a result of cell phone use. With the increase of available apps that are mobile-friendly, distracted driving is becoming more and more common for those on the road.

Whether you’re talking on the phone, texting, checking Twitter or posting a selfie on Snapchat, you’re distracted. Snapchat, for example, is an app with a miles per hour feature that displays the speed at which the user is going. Some users are seen to “brag” about their speed, at rates of 106 mph and more.

Many individuals do not take into consideration how dangerous distracted driving is for not only yourself, but those that may cross paths with you. Do yourself and all others around you a favor and abide by Massachusetts’ state law of restrictions regarding cell phones and texting. Whatever it is, it can wait!
