Britin! Get off your phone! Don't you know that the National Safety Council reported that texting while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes a year. Data found by Stella Santos and Nadia Bukres-Kidd proves that even if you're only distracted for 4 seconds, and you're driving at a velocity of 10m/s and have a braking deceleration of -8m/s, then it will take you 52.25 meters to stop!
Maybe he's right...it's really dangerous to not be paying attention. Even a small distraction time can result in a huge accident.
