    Unsafe at Any Speed
      You've seen the public service campaigns, the billboards, and the dire warnings from the government. Drivers who text are six times more likely to crash, so please don't do it. Pregnant women are 7.7 times more likely to die from the flu, so get vaccinated. Babies who sleep on their stomachs are 12.9 times more likely to die of SIDS, so put them on their backs. Because these activities increase someone's chance of dying, millions of government dollars have been devoted to combating them.
