Grace says that even a few seconds checking one’s phone at 60 miles per hour means a driver’s eyes are off the road for the length of a football field.

-Words and Phrases
deadly combination 致命的な[命取りの] 組み合わせ
Salmans means these things together can literally be fatal. We also use “deadly combination” about things that bring very, very bad results when combined. Like, ignorance and arrogance are a deadly combination. Or, to use a slight variation, money and carelessness are a fatal combination. That’s fine too.
ignorance and arrogance 無知と傲慢さ money and carelessness お金と不注意さ
