Came across this quiz on the Chaffin Luhana, LLP Pittsburgh, PA personal injury law firm website. I like searching the web while looking for different distracted driving related quizzes and testing my knowledge out on them. Usually each quiz has pretty similar questions with the same type answers which is good that people are trying to do their part in stopping distracted driving, but the quizzes in all honesty are more often then not, pretty boring to do. I like this quiz because occupaning each answer to the questions is a graphic, or video that supports the answer. The graphic visualizations included in this quiz make it much more visually stimulating and offers the user much more then just a simple question and answer. Here are the quizzes Q&A’s, including each visualization and or video.
1. ) IF YOU ARE DRIVING AT 60 MPH, HOW FAR WILL YOUR VEHICLE TRAVEL BEFORE YOU STOP?
On Average, It takes nearly 7 seconds to stop and you will have traveled more than the length of a football field!
2. ) ON AVERAGE, HOW LONG DOES A DRIVER WHO IS TEXTING TAKE THEIR EYES OFF THE ROAD FOR?
3. ) MULTI-TASKING IS WHAT ALLOWS YOUR BRAIN TO BE ABLE TO FOCUS ON BOTH DRIVING SAFELY AND TALK ON A CELL PHONE AT THE SAME TIME?
