In 2017, over 1500 South Africans died on our roads. This is a horrifying statistic, and one that we should work together to change. While alcohol and speeding are major factors in road accidents, distraction from use of a cellphone is a growing problem.

If you’re talking on a cellphone, you’re four times more likely to have an accident. If you’re texting or looking at the net on your phone, you’re 23 times more likely to crash.

Whether you’re driving across the country to your holiday destination, or just nipping to the shops, you should be equally careful behind the wheel. These handy tips will help you drive responsibly.

When you text, your attention is taken off the road for approximately five seconds. On a highway, at 120km/h, you’d travel one-and-a-half football pitches in that time, without looking at the road. Obviously, that is incredibly dangerous.

Vodacom wants you to W8_2Send - consider what text message or WhatsApp is worth your life, the lives of your passengers, and the other road users around you. Rather pull over to a safe place, like a garage, to have your text conversation or check Google Maps.

If you think you’ll be tempted, make a habit of leaving your cellphone in the boot. It’ll be safe from a smash and grab, too.
