Chances are you’ve probably done it. You’ve checked a text, made a phone call, been fatigued or sleepy, or simply "zoned out" for a moment while driving. I have a 40 mile commute to work each way and I see it on the road every day. Drivers take distracted driving dangers for granted thinking "it can’t happen to me."

Even commercial vehicle drivers are not immune and there continue to be troubling reports about bus drivers, taxi drivers and drivers in trucking accidents who drive while texting, fatigued or otherwise distracted.

Now, another bus driver, has been caught on video driving with not one, but two cell phones:

This distracted bus driver was in Italy, but we face the same dangers here in America.

Texting and using a cell phone while driving account for more than 25% of auto crashes. In fact, distracted driving can be as dangerous and as deadly as driving drunk.

Please don’t put yourself and others at risk.
