Collier County Sheriff’s Office / 3319 Tamiami Trail E Bldg. J / Naples, Florida 34112 / (239)252-9300 In 2011, at least 23% of vehicle accidents involved cell phones. That’s 1.3 million accidents! Text messaging makes a crash up to 23X more likely. The minimal amount of time your attention is taken away from the road when you’re texting and driving is 5 seconds. If you are driving 55 mph you would have traveled the length of a football field. 77% of young adults are very or somewhat confident that they can safely text while driving. Sheriff Kevin Rambosk
