Texting while driving is considered one of the most dangerous distracted driving behaviors. Sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes away from the road for an average of just under 5 seconds; anyone driving 55 mph will travel the equivalent distance of a football field in that time.
There are three primary forms of distraction, which include:
While reading and answering a text message, the driver is distracted in all three ways. Studies have shown that this type of driving can be just as dangerous, if not more, than driving while drunk.
Other common forms of distraction include:
There’s a reason texting and driving has been prohibited in many places across the U.S. It puts everyone else on the road in danger, even if the driver thinks it will just take a second to respond. There is no safe way to text and drive, and if you are hit by someone who is distracted in this way, you are likely eligible for compensation.
