Drunk, Drugged or Texting?

Whenever you observe a vehicle veering off course, speeding up and slowing down, or reacting slowly to traffic conditions, it is highly likely the driver is drunk, on drugs or on a cell phone.

Talking, dialing, texting or
browsing on cell phones has become the second-leading cause of automobile crashes in the USA according to a new study from the National Safety Council. Worse yet is the fact that most cell phone caused accidents are underreported or not reported in the crash data. There are disparities among state-by-state reporting of cell phone caused fatalities for reasons varying by state practices, criminal ramifications and drivers or passengers to be convicted of careless driving.

According to the NHTSA, texting
while driving is as dangerous as driving after consuming four beers and causes 1,600,000 accidents per year; 30,000 injuries annually; and 11 teen deaths PER DAY!. Who's going to fix the problem?
