Chances are you've done it. You've checked a text, email, or made a call while driving. Teen drivers know that texting and driving is dangerous, but nearly half do it anyway.
Teen (and older) drivers might know distracting driving is dangerous, but most drivers underestimate the risk not only to themselves, but to others. In fact, distracted driving is even more dangerous than drinking and driving. Texting (or otherwise distracted) drivers are twice as likely to cause a crash than in drinking.
What if drivers had to take this road test?
Don't put yourself and others at risk. Don't drive distracted.
