Take the Pledge South Carolina
As mobile devices become increasingly available, so do crashes as a result of distracted driving. How will you help reverse the trend?
Mobile devices, especially smart phones, are more popular than ever. With these items, however, comes the temptation to use them while behind the wheel. Reading and sending text messages while driving is enough to impair your safety as much as driving at twice the legal alcohol consumption level. The consequences can be serious, even deadly.
Distracted driving is especially dangerous to our teen drivers in Greenville and Spartanburg. Developing safe driving habits early on is integral to staying secure while out on the road; however, the temptation to send a text message can be significantly greater for young drivers. Making sure your teenager understands this is one of the most important things you can do as a parent.
Most importantly, texting and driving, including sending email and instant messages, is prohibited by law in South Carolina. You can read more in Title 56, Chapter 5 on Uniform Act Regulating Traffic on Highways below:
