Distracted Driving - In A Split Second
Distracted driving is a growing problem. These distractions can come in many forms: cellphones, the radio, food, or passengers. But anything that takes a driver's attention away from the road can cause disastrous consequences. Every year, there are over 90,000 car crashes that involve a distracted driver.
There are 1,200 injuries and 15 deaths each day due to distracted drivers. If cases of distracted driving continue at the present rate, by 2030, it will be the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S.
The grim statistics don't end there. 40% of teens admit to having texted while driving and 20% of drivers have admitted to surfing the web while driving. It's estimated that at this very moment, 10% of drivers are on their cellphones. Studies show that using a cellphone while driving reduces brain activity by 37%, which would seem to explain why drivers are 4 times more likely to get into a serious crash when using a handheld device.
Distracted Driving -In A Split Second tells the story of Nicole Cline, a mother of three young children, who’s life tragically ended when a teenaged distracted driver hit her vehicle from behind and pushed her into oncoming traffic. A split second - and a life was ended and a family forever changed.
This video explains the dangers of not only texting and driving, but the three types of distractions (visual, manual and cognitive) and how each type is difficult for a person to notice when they are experiencing it. Interviews with experts, young drivers who admit to driving distracted and with Nicole’s family make this a compelling video that will educate and impress your viewers.
