According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1.2 million people die in road crashes worldwide each year – that's one traffic-related fatality every 30 seconds of every day. And another 20 to 50 million are injured annually.
In fact, the World Health Organization projects that by 2030, crash
fatalities will become the 5th leading cause of all deaths worldwide,
surpassing HIV/AIDS, all forms of cancer, violence, and diabetes.
The good news is that these crashes, these deaths are preventable.
It all starts with a commitment to remain cell phone free while driving.
Let's all do our part to reverse this devastating trend by talking to all
the drivers we know about the dangers of mobile phone use while driving.
