Texting While Driving Proven To Be Fatal
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Driving while texting has proven to be just as dangerous if not more dangerous
than driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. According to the
Department of Motor Vehicles, approximately nine vehicular fatalities
are caused by
distracted driving and 26% of all auto accidents involve cell phone use. When an individual
takes his or her eyes from the roadway for more than three seconds he
or she is at great risk for causing an auto accident. Many states have
now created laws to prevent these accidents. Drivers are required to use
hands-free devices that ensure they are not distracted by their cell phones.
Many automakers have also implemented technology to ensure that calls
can be received through the vehicle allowing for the hands-free communication.
There are thousands of accident that results in injury, damages, and even
death that could have been avoided with responsible driving.
