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.
