Are you annoyed with Drivers that focus more on their CELL PHONES than ON THE ROAD? Do you think that Drivers should recieve STIFFER Penalties when cell phone usage results in injury/ fatality? Unfortunately ONE text message/phone call can be the difference between Life & Death. Many people, including Law Enforcement, continue to violate the Cell Phone laws on a daily basis. Below are several statistics about "Driver Distractions" and the effect that it has on others. After reading the entirety of the facts listed below, YOU be the Judge.
The United States Department of Transportation notes that cell phones are involved in 1.6 million auto crashes each year that cause a half million injuries and take 6,000 lives.
According to FocusDriven®, up to 80% of all crashes involve some form of driver distraction.
During any point of the day, 11% of drivers are talking on their cell phones, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A study from the University of Utah indicated that the reaction time of a teen driver using a cell phone is the same as that of a 70-year-old driver who is not using a cell phone.
According to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, texting while driving is six times more likely to cause an auto crash than driving when intoxicated.
The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute installed cameras on dashboards inside truck cabs. From the video footage, on average it took five seconds with their eyes off the road when driver's experienced distractions. The distance covered in five seconds of driving at 55 mph is equivalent to the length of a football field.

Join Partners in Health in Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we continue our discussion about how "Smart Couples Finish Rich" -- Pt. 5.
Most of us don't really think about how we spend our money--or if we do,we focus soley on the big items. At the same time, we ignore the small but steady expenses that drain away our cash.
We don't think about what it cost us to earn our money and we don't realize how much wealth we could have if, instead of wasting it, we invested it.
The point is, you work hard for your money, and your money should work just as hard for you!
Plan Together...Win Together.

Although most people know that balancing their checkbook at least once a month keeps things in order and it prevents overdrafts on their account, many don't do it.
Did you know that overdrafts are a sign of crisis living and sloppy, lazy money habits? But especially with the growing use of debit cards, overdrafts have become common -- and the banks are racking up fees like crazy in "overdraft protection." In fact, the Center for Responsible Lending reported that overdraft fees alone brought in 10.3 billion for the banks in a single year recently."
