This storyboard does not have a description.
Molly was on her way to her Mom's house for a picnic. On her way, her friend Julie calls her. Molly and Julie start talking about Julie's boyfriend Brad. -Nearly half (48%) of drivers admit to answering their cell phones while driving.
Louis was walking home from a hard day at college. Louis is going to school to be a teacher.
Louis house was across the street from the one he was on. But, because that street is a busy street there is a four-way stop sign. So, Louis looked both ways and there no cars, so he starteed to cross.
Molly turned the corner onto the street Louis was walking across, and she was still on the phone with Julie, so because her concentration was on that phone call she didn't see the stop sign that was ahead of her. -21% of teen drivers involved in fatal accidents were distracted by their cell phones.
Because Molly was not paying attention, she did not see the stop sign, or Louis. She ended up hitting Louis. -The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year.
Molly realized what happened and called 911. When the ambulance and the police arrived the took Louis to the hospital and the police had to arrest molly. When the officer asked her if there was anything she would like to say for herself, she responded with "Dont use your phone and drive".
-Teen drivers are 4x more likely than adults to get into car crashes or near-crashes when talking or texting on a cell phone. -Of those who answered their phones while driving, 58% of drivers continued to drive while talking on the phone. Put the phone away! Don't be like Molly. DOnt be a distracted driver!
