Don’t Tweet & Drive

If you were told the number of car accidents caused by drivers using social networking sites such as Twitter while driving had increased, you wouldn’t be surprised, considering the phenomenon wasn’t even invented 5 years ago.

Anyway, despite this glaringly obvious detail, car insurance people Swinton have revealed that they have had a 12% increase in claims because motorists were driving whilst on Facebook or Twitter.

Steve Chalton from Swinton has called for a ban on Tweeting & driving saying; ‘as technology advances, we are seeing more and more drivers using smart phones and other devices while behind the wheel - and this is leading to more accidents on our roads. Even in slow moving traffic, writing or reading a message is a major distraction. Our advice is simple - turn off any electronic equipment before getting into a car for a safer journey.’
