DWI – Driving While Intexticated

Heather Arthur, Wellness Champion for Harbin Clinic Adairsville, is promoting Safety Awareness in her office during the month of August. Heather provided the following statistics about the dangers of texting while driving:

Last year, there were 3,840 crashes attributed to cell phone use/distracted driving in Georgia, according to the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. Nine were fatal and 955 resulted in serious injuries.

The amount of time that drivers spent looking at the roadway ahead was significantly less when they were texting, no matter which texting method was used.
