Four distracted driving Myths (Infographic)

Tony Commisso - Wednesday, August 09, 2017
Distracted driving certainly includes texting, but what many people don’t realize is that a mobile phone conversation while driving, regardless of hands-free technology, is also very dangerous.

  • Myth 4: Drivers talking on cell phone still have a quicker reaction time than those who are driving under the influence.
