The Dangers of Texting and Driving

At Echo Limousine, we pride ourselves on providing quality limousine car services, and while service & luxury are the prominent benefits to our customers, we also want to keep your safety in mind as you work on the go. Whether it’s a phone call, email or text message, we understand that distractions can be hard to avoid while driving.

While some of the stats are Canadian-specific, the message holds true. Did you know that during rush hour traffic a driver has 10 times more distractions than a fighter pilot? Or that at 60m/h you could drive past 10 football fields? See the full infographic below:
