YOU’RE ONE CALL FROM BEING A KILLER, ONE TEXT FROM BEING IN PRISON.

YOU’RE ONE CALL FROM BEING A KILLER, ONE TEXT FROM BEING IN PRISON.

If you use your mobile phone to write or read a text message while driving:

  • Your reaction time will increase.
  • You are not paying attention to the road or how you are driving.
  • You are more likely to fail to detect hazards.
  • You will be more prone to drifting outside your lane.
  • You will have poor control of your speed.
  • You will increase your risk of crashing.

 

One lapse can last a lifetime
If you use or are distracted by a mobile phone while driving, you could kill or seriously injure someone and face up to 14 years in prison.
