Looking at one text can be the difference between life and death

To the Editor:

Five seconds that's all it takes. Looking at one text can be the difference between life and death. Five seconds of inattentiveness while going 60 mph is equivalent to closing your eyes and driving 100 feet.

Vehicle accidents are the number one killer in people aged 15 to 20. The National Safety Council estimates 28 percent of all recorded traffic crashes, 1.6 million crashes a year, involve drivers texting.

Thirty-four percent of teens admit to texting while driving. Teens who text spend about 10 percent of their driving time outside of their lane.
