Stop Texting/Talking on Your Cellphone While Driving

The National Safety Council estimates 23 percent of all motor vehicle crashes, 1.3 million per year, involve a driver talking or texting on a cell phone. It urges all drivers to:
  • Turn off or silence their phones before driving.
  • Record a voicemail greeting telling callers it is not safe to make or receive calls while driving and that they will return the calls when able to do so safely.
  • Leave the road and park in a safe area if a call is urgent.
  • Encourage family members and friends to stop using their phones while driving.
