Lots of things can distract you while you are driving. Anything from an emotional crisis, to fast food, to a text message can take your eyes and your mind off the road. Now a new study has show that distracted driving more than doubles your risk of a car crash, making it all the more important to decide “it can wait.”

You’re on a busy highway, driving along at the speed limit, when suddenly your phone lights up. A friend is texting you, wondering if you’re still coming. You’re already late. Now you’re anxious too, and you don’t want to upset your friend. You pick up the phone and shoot back “be there soon.” But how much of the road did you miss while you were texting? And what did your distracted driving do to your chance of being in a serious auto accident?

A new study published by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that distracted driving – of any kind – more than doubles your risk of getting into a serious auto accident. That’s not just texting while driving.
