Taking selfies while driving is a popular and life-threatening trend: 1 in 10 people admit to taking selfies while driving. The biggest offenders are men. And it’s not just young drivers; 9 percent of people surveyed were more advanced drivers who still admitted to this dangerous activity.
For many drivers, it is just a habit to constantly be connected with their mobile device in everyday life, so they feel comfortable using it behind the wheel. The reality is that this type of distraction while driving takes your mind, your hands, and your eyes off the road.
AT&T has a new campaign to discourage using social media while driving. Sharing that photo is not worth someone’s life.
Watch this video from a St. Louis news station interviewing an AT&T representative and showing off the new simulator that lets you safely experience how dangerous it really is to drive and use your phone at the same time.
If you would like to try the simulator app or download an app that silences messages and alerts while you are driving, visit www.itcanwait.com/apps-and-tools.
