Distracted driving is a problem which concerns all of us, no matter where we live. It isn’t just the U.S. that suffers from texting and driving according to some recently released statistics from Great Britain.
A total of 24,620 people were killed or seriously injured in distracted driving-related accidents in the year ending June 2016 in the UK. That is an increase of 3% compared to the previous calendar year.
In 2015, 38,300 people were killed in automobile accidents in the U.S., and 4.4 million were seriously injured.
At Teens Against Distracted Driving we support all initiative to change this dangerous behavior. Therefore, we said ‘yes’, when AA Trust contacted us to share their new campaign Never Text and Drive.
“The more we share the more lives we can save,” said Jason Epstein, the Seattle Personal Injury Attorney who founded Teens Against Distracted Driving whose mission is to educate teenagers and parents about the dangers of distracted driving.
