Who would imagine your thumbs can kill YOU ? WHAT IS DISTRACTED DRIVING? Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety. These types of distractions include: Texting Using a cell phone or smartphone Eating and drinking Talking to passengers Grooming Reading, including maps Using a navigation system Watching a video Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player
More than 4 in 10 teens admit to texting while driving, and those that do are more likely to engage in other risks while driving.
If your teen texts while driving, chances are he or she also practices other dangerous motor vehicle habits — including failing to buckle up and driving after they have been drinking, a new federal analysis finds.
In 2011, 45% of all students 16 and older reported that they had texted or e-mailed while driving during the past 30 days, says the study by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and reported in June's Pediatrics, released online today.
Teens who texted while driving were five times more likely than those who didn't to drive when they had been drinking alcohol. And the more they texted the worse their seat belt habit. Teens who texted every day while driving during the past month were more than 40% more likely to not always wear their seat belts than were teens who engaged in texting while driving once or twice in the past 30 days.
It's not surprising that kids who take such risks in one area may be more likely to take risks in other areas, says CDC Director Thomas Frieden.
"But the big picture is that the greatest single risk to teenagers in this country is getting hurt or killed in a motor vehicle crash; that's the most likely thing to result in their death," he says. "And texting while driving makes teen driving even more dangerous."

This is my greatest pet peeve in today's times and I'm sure many of you out there listening can relate to this..How many times have you tried to talk to either a family member, friend or even a colleague at work, that rather than talk to you either face to face or talking to you on the phone, you end up getting some Facebook message from this person or you end up getting a text message and when you tried to call this person, the call goes straight to voicemail. Isn't this frustrating?
I wrote a post today regarding this very issue with some references to helpful hints from other articles.. My blog post can be found here:

Some generations were more social. They did not have all of the gadgets that are out now. My generation had the land line phone Atari, record, concerts,bikes, get togethers and the malls were available for us to hang out. We walked, talked, hung out, went out to eat and still talked with our parents. Now kids are fat use facetime and can not hold or start a conversation. What are your thoughts?
Vacationing with children while injured requires additional planning.
