Don’t Become a Statistic

• Texting drivers are 23 times more likely to be in an accident, according to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.
• Both reading a text and sending a text while driving creates the risk of a car accident. Car accidents are associated with some of the most devastating orthopedic and brain injuries, as well as, death.  If a person survives a texting and driving accident, they may be subject to serious fines and penalties.
