At highway speeds, a car travels more than a football field in the time it takes a driver to send the average text message. In this Children's Channel video, Heather Trnka, EMT-P, EMS-I, the injury prevention coordinator at Akron Children's, discusses texting and other distractions that create life-threatening situations for drivers and passengers alike.
