"That split second decision, that moment you're not paying attention to your driving, that something can happen very quickly," says Captain Pat McJunkin of the Casper Fire Department.

Having technology at our fingertips easily distracts us, but it can quickly become a deadly decision. In a SafeWise report, around 37,000 people were killed in car crashes in 2016. 3,500 of those were caused by distracted drivers.

"There is no text message, there is no task inside a car other than driving that is more important than you getting somewhere safely," McJunkin added.
