Because of the widespread use of mobile and other handheld devices, there has been a steady increase of auto accidents and collisions directly correlated to distracted driving. Distracted driving tendencies, such as using mobile devices to make a call, text, or brows the internet, has resulted in many accident-related injuries, and even loss of life.
Text messaging while driving has proven to be one of the most dangerous distracted driving tendencies. 39 states in the United States have already made it illegal. In fact, there’s about 1,600 accidents attributed to texting while driving annually. Not only that, it leads to 330,000 injuries each year. This is six times more likely to lead to an accident than driving under influence.
