Colorado State Patrol Sergeant Burl Giffin has seen his fair share of distracted driving consequences during his time investigating fatal accidents in Colorado, and it was his goal to prevent students from becoming a statistic.

During a five week long session held for BHS students, the Morgan County Sheriff's Office, Colorado State Patrol, Mike Boehm of Farmer's Fendi Handbag Monster Insurance and Aaron Davis of All State Insurance presented some hard facts on the dangers of distracted driving, encouraging students to take measures to stay focused on the road. were killed by driving distractions. In the same year, an estimated 450,000 were injured as a result of distracted driving. were killed on highways but a larger number, nearly 1.6 million, survived. These survivors, however, are part of a group of crash victims who suffered life long debilitating injuries due to distracted driving incidents.
were brought up.
As Davis pointed out to students, their parent's assets also are at risk. In the event of being sued by a victim of a child's careless driving, a parent can lose the family's house, cars, wages can be garnished up to 25 percent and even the family business can be lost.
According to Giffin, 30 miles an hour equals 44 feet per second. From the time a driver takes his or her foot off the gas pedal and onto the brake, a car can travel 33 feet at 30. Driving at 75 mph equals 110 feet per second, and at that speed it can take 83 feet for a driver to respond and brake.
"It's not just you that careless driving can affect," Davis said, adding that an insurance claim on a distracted driving accident can run more than $500,000. In fact, 30 percent of distracted accidents resulted in claims of more than $1 million. Texting is one of the leading causes of distractions and, on average, men text more than women and the 18 24 demographic is most likely to be involved in such cases.
All State Insurance representative Aaron Davis was on hand to ask students the all important question, "What can five seconds cost?" The answer would surprise any fiscally minded parent.
Forms of distractions brought up included cell phones, food, makeup, reading and music. They were lumped into three major areas: visual, which require the driver to look away from the road, manual, such as adjusting the radio, temperature and texting, and mental distractions, where driver's aren't focused on the task at hand.

"Nobody plans on being in a crash and killing themselves or somebody else," Sergeant Robert Evans of the Morgan County Sheriff's Office said to Brush High School sophomores recently. "That is why it's called an accident."
The first was to put on a seatbelt immediately after getting in a car, no matter what the distance is they would be traveling. The second was to put cell phones away to take away the temptation. The third was to keep their eyes on the road and focus, each and every time they get into the car.
"If your head is not in the game, and if your eyeballs are not on the road," stated Giffin, "you simply won't be able to react in time."
During an experiment with students, Giffin also showed just how quickly a driver who is texting can become distracted, asking one student to text the phrase "the quick red fox jumped over the lazy dog." It took the student 20.5 seconds to complete the text, and in 20.5 seconds a car driving at a rate of 75 mph could have traveled 2,200 feet.
There were three pieces of advice Giffin wanted students to take away from the talk.
Small wonder, then, that local law enforcement and insurance agencies are stepping up their efforts to educate young drivers about the dangerous they can Fendi Striped Tote Bag
