Did you know that a mom with kids in the car is twice as likely to have a car crash as a drunk driver?
Twice as likely!
If that’s not a staggering statistic, I don’t know what is.
Dr. David Strayer, leading US researcher on accidents and driving safety, found that moms are the most distracted drivers on the road, watching the backseat, even turning around to address crying or fighting children at least once per trip.
I’m a mom. I get it. I do it, too.
Did you know that your car travels about 176 feet in the time it takes you to turn around and refocus on the road? A lot can happen in 176 feet – stopped traffic, a bend in the road, a deer, a person… It’s dangerous.
Perhaps worst of all, we’re 3 times more likely to have an accident when our kids are in the car. They’re our biggest distractions.
Mom! I dropped my doll!
Mom! The iPad isn’t working. Can you fix it?
Mom! I can’t get my shoe buckled. Help!
Mommy! Her hit me!
