Car Accidents Caused While Texting And Driving
Distracted driving has become a huge problem as many people read or send text messages while they are behind the wheel. Despite the fact that doing this is illegal in the State of Illinois, many people continue to text while they drive, thereby putting themselves and everyone around them in danger.
What The Statistics Say About Texting and Driving Accidents
The obvious problem with texting is that it requires you to take your eyes off the road. The average length of time to look at or respond to a text is five seconds, and a lot can happen in those few moments. It is no wonder that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that distracted driving accidents injure 391,000 people in addition to killing 3,477 others every year.
