Texting and driving is a more prevalent problem today than most people realize. Even worse is the fact that it's even a problem for those who drive safely; those around them aren't always making the same choices. Some groups of people are more likely to drive than others depending on social factors, individual behavior choices, policy, and biology and genetics. While this might not have anything to do with prescriptions, it does have to do with pharmacy. A pharmacist is responsible for educating the community and keeping those within it healthy. They have the potential to make a lasting impact on this issue. There are ways that people who aren't pharmacists can help reduce the incidence of texting and driving-related accidents as well, such as turning off their phone while driving, practicing defensive driving, and keeping a safe distance between cars.
