In today's bustling society, multi-tasking has become the norm. In fact, many of us actually boast of our abilities to handle multiple things at a time in an effort to promote more efficiency and cater to the demands of a culture that is always on the go.

The truth is that multi-tasking has actually robbed many people of true efficiency and productivity. In fact, recent research conducted by psychologists suggests that only 2%of people can successfully multitask. What does this shocking statistic mean for drivers sharing the roads throughout Charlotte? It may mean that we are all in more danger than we may have originally suspected.

The consequences of distracted driving can be fatal:

  • Text messaging increases the likelihood of being involved in an accident by 23 times.
  • In the year of 2011, nearly 1.3 million auto collisions involved cell phone usage prior to the accident.
  • There were an estimated 421,000 injured people due to distracted driving accidents in the year of 2012 alone.
  • 10% of all drivers under the age of 20 who were involved in fatal crashes were distracted at the time of the crash.
