Multitasking is a great skill at work but not while driving.

Sending text messages on mobile phones, eating, putting on makeup, changing radio stations or using internet radio stations can be dangerous when you are driving.

Some drivers are even taking photos and posting them on Twitter or Instagram while behind the wheel, using the hashtag #WhileDriving.

Motor vehicle and motorcycle crashes are the number one cause of injuries at the Level One Trauma Center at John Peter Smith Hospital.

You can leave your phone in the back seat so you are not tempted to use it. Set your music choices while you are still in the driveway or parking lot and before you start driving.

Text messages and social media posts can wait until the car is parked.

As Ryne Johnson, a nurse in the JPS Emergency Department, put it: “Text Later.”
