Texting while Driving Gaining National Attention

The proliferation of cell phones with texting and Internet access is certainly an advance in technology and convenience but it is also a safety problem that is plaguing the highways of this country. Texting while driving is rapidly is becoming the as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The “eyes off the road” factor essentially creates a vehicle without a driver moving at highway speeds. The results are often deadly or life altering. The lure of getting the information right now is becoming epidemic. Texting and using the Internet while driving has also given rise to various state laws that criminalize the practice in an attempt to reduce the huge number of accidents that it causes. Concentration and reaction times are essentially reduced to zero in many accidents or causes a driver to over correct at the last moment to avoid what should be the obvious and as a result causes accidents. Certainly cell phone use is critical in the development of a crash investigation.
