Driving While Texting Is a Killer Combo

We all know the dangers with using wireless communication devices like your cell phone or iPod while driving, yet most of us continue to do so. With car crashes being the number one killer of teens in the U.S, the Today Show decided to see just how distracted teens can get while using their phone while driving. Using a special simulator and wearing high-tech glasses, two teens were put to the test to see how much they looked away and for how long while taking calls, changing songs on their iPod, or sending a text message. All it takes is two seconds for someone to be distracted and cause an accident, as you'll see in this video. Lesson learned? Always exercise caution, don't look away from the road, and invest in a bluetooth headset.
