Attention teen protestors: YOUR texting and driving kills 269 times as many people as school shootings!

Mar 25, 2018

 

Wikipedia has this comprehensive, well documented article called “List of school shootings in the United States.”

School shootings are so rare and infrequent that it wouldn’t be good to just look at any one year, so I’m going to look at all the school shootings from  January 1, 1999 (the year of the Columbine massacre, which is often cited as the beginning of the “modern” era of school shootings) and go up until March 20, 2018, which is the most recent school shooting (Great Mills, Maryland) on the chart.

From January 1, 1999 until March 20, 2018 is a time period of 7019 days.

During those 7019 days, a total of 286 people were killed in school shootings.

That works out to 0.0408 people killed per day in school shootings.

Meanwhile, according to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, texting and driving kills an average of 11 teenagers every day.

This means that your texting and driving kills 269 times as many people as school shootings.
