Dangers of Texting & Driving
Driving is dangerous, especially at high speeds. However, many people believe texting and driving is not that big of a deal, especially because we are so used to having a cell phone in our hands at almost all times of the day. Despite the overwhelming statistics proving just how untrue this statement really is, some drivers continue to endanger their lives, as well as the lives of those with whom they are sharing the road with. The sad reality is that texting and driving can lead to disastrous, and often fatal, consequences. Taking your attention off the road for even a couple of seconds may result in loss of life, which is why we at MCIS Lawyers believe no text is too important not to wait.
Teen drivers have time and time again proven to be the group with the highest statistic of texting and driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, cell phone use while driving is highest amongst those between the ages of 16-24. This is because young drivers feel as though they can easily multi-task even when they are behind the wheel–nevertheless, statistics show this certainly isn’t the case. In an effort to spread awareness about this growing problem amongst American drivers, the NHTSA has launched a number of important campaigns against distracted driving, in the hopes of saving the lives of many in the future.
