State troopers and local police officers listed cellphone use as a contributing factor in 3,283 accidents in 2012

In fact, a ConnectSafely.org1 survey found that individuals who speak up can have a profound impact, particularly on teens.

  • 78% of teen drivers say they’re likely not to text and drive if friends tell them it's wrong or stupid.
  • 90% say they’d stop if a friend in the car asked them to.
  • 93% would stop if a parent in the car asked them to.
  • 44% say that they would be thankful if a passenger complained about their texting while driving.
