Driving While Texting Accidents
The Dangers of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is somewhat of an epidemic on America's roads and
highways. Data indicates that in the year 2010 alone, more than 3,000
people died because of distracted driving crashes. While not all of these
crashes are the result of texting while driving, a majority of them are.
In the state of Georgia, it is illegal for drivers to use cell phones
while driving, whether talking handheld, hands-free or texting. A helpful
illustration is to think of texting while driving as the equivalent of
driving the entire length of a football field at 55pmh while blindfolded.
This is a troubling reality that endangers drivers on the road on a daily
basis. While there is no federal ban on texting while driving, it is illegal
in Georgia although many do not obey this law. Far too many people are
injured or killed every year simply because a text message could not wait.
If this is what happened in your scenario, we would like to speak with
you. Drivers are not only breaking a traffic law, they are acting in a
negligent manner when they drive and text at the same time. To find out
