It isn't enough to drive sober, as this NTF Vast campaign points out, because distracted driving of any kind can slow your reaction time and cause you to miss crucial changes in driving conditions up ahead.

While you're typing an SMS to a friend much of your attention is inevitably on the screen of your iPhone, making a collision all the more likely.
