Dangers Texting While Driving

DWI: Driving While Intexticated

Texting-while-driving can result to deadly consequences. Before an accident, drivers usually spend five seconds looking at their phone, which is enough time to cover more than the length of a football field going normal highway speeds, according to the Auto-Owners Insurance release.

According to a survey conducted by End Distracted Driving, 52 percent of drivers admit that they still text and drive today. This is true even though 93 percent of those same drivers agreed that texting and driving is dangerous.

The distraction involved in completing one text while driving is the equivalent of consuming four alcoholic beverages while driving.

There is a significant increase rate of accidents, injuries and deaths that have occurred because of texting and driving. Check out the infographic above, eliminating this practice will save lives and promote safe driving practice.

  3. I've discovered that the newer phones make it more difficult to text while driving. This can be a good or bad thing; good in that folks like me might be more inclined to wait to text because we're too uncoordinated to do it, or bad in that they may attempt it anyway even if it requires more involved action. The voice features help but they are still a distraction. I've found it's best to wait. No one died while I waited to text, but sadly some have died because they don't wait to text.
