■ Distracted driving crashes kill more than 3,000 people and injure 416,000 each year
■ Reaction time is delayed for a driver talking on a cell phone as much as it is for a driver who is legally drunk
■ More texting leads to more crashes. With each additional 1 million text messages, fatalities from distracted driving rose more than 75%
■ People under the age of 20 are involved in more fatal crashes due to distractions than any other age group
