Smartphones have made it easy for us to stay connected at all times. But sending text messages, checking emails or posting on your Facebook wall whilst driving, poses serious safety risks to yourself and other motorists.
According to BusinessTech, South Africa has one of the highest road accident rates in the world. Using a mobile device while driving is the cause of over 25% of road accidents. According to Polity.org.za, who posted a recent study conducted by Ipsos, 41% of motorists are guilty of texting, emailing or using social media whilst driving. The use of mobile phones while driving combined with the inexperience of young motorists, will leave you with some dangerous driving behaviour.
