Combating the texting while driving impulse

Engaging in texting while driving or driving while performing other audio-visual tasks, such as dialing a telephone, triples the risk of becoming involved in a car accident according to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.

However, a third of these drivers admitted to engaging in this behavior.

In 2012, Connecticut suffered 85 drunk driving fatalities in which the driver's blood alcohol content was between 0.08 and 0.15, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
