Combine that with the insidious habit of texting while driving and there is a toxic chance of unintended but horrible results. One week in November is dedicated to highlighting the very real dangers of texting and driving. On this site sponsored by the National HighwayTraffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council you’ll find thirty facts that relate to the dangers of texting and driving and distracted driving. There is attribution for each fact, so it’s not just an adult waggling a finger and spouting warnings. There are also videos and tips that will help you not text. Please heed these warnings so you can enjoy this holiday season and the intervening time before the next one.Nov. 26
