Billboards, music, text messages, accident scenes...so many things can distract you from the most important task at hand: driving.

Sure, you know there's a long list of things you shouldn't be doing while you drive texting, tailing, putting on makeup but the road's not that crowded and what does it matter you're not paying attention to the road for just 5 seconds?

It matters a lot. In fact, your life depends on it.

At 55 mph, looking away for "just 5 seconds" means you're driving the length of a football field without looking at the road. A football field! 360 feet!

So whether you're texting, answering emails, changing albums on Spotify, taking your eyes off the road increases your chance of being a part of the 421,000 people a year injured in a crash involving a distracted driver, according to EndTextWrecks.org.

How safe of a driver are you? Take this quick quiz to find out. And, make a pledge to end text wrecks.
