Dangers of Texting While Driving

Texting and driving is considered one of the most hazardous distracted driving behaviors. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, cellphones are involved in approximately 1.6 million motor vehicle collisions annually, resulting in 6,000 fatalities and half a million injuries.

The tree main forms of distraction include the following:

  • Visual – Taking your eyes away from the road
  • Cognitive – Taking your mind away from the primary task of operating a vehicle
  • Manual – Hands are off the steering wheel

Texting while driving involves all of these three factors. Distracted driving can be just as dangerous as intoxicated driving.
