Distracted Driving and Russian Roulette

distracted driving is deadly

How deadly is distracted driving? Do you like playing Russian Roulette with your life? Watch ‘A Game of Chance’ to see how deadly distracted driving is.

In the video, a young driver fires a gun loaded with one bullet at her head each time she becomes distracted.

Do you think this video is too harsh? Think again. According to the Canadian Automobile Association:

  • Distracted driving causes 28% of all crash fatalities in BC.
  • People texting while driving are 23 times more likely to crash.
  • Distracted drivers cause 4 million vehicle crashes every year in North America.

Safe driving requires 100% of your attention. Remember, the fine for using a smartphone while driving is $167 and three penalty points. Empty the gun. Put away your smartphone. Don’t drive while distracted.
