Frequency of accidents: More than 200,000 collisions involving at least one passenger car and one large truck happen each year in the United States. (NTSI)

Texting and Driving: Sending or receiving a text message distracts a truck driver for an average 4.6 seconds. The average speed of a truck on the highway is around 55 mph. If a trucker was to look down at his or her phone for 4.6 seconds at 55 mph they will cover an entire football field.

Accidents involving automobiles: In the United States in more than 60% of all fatal collisions involving automobiles and large trucks, law enforcement ocials report that the automobile operator rather than the truck driver contributed to the cause of the collision. (NTSI)
