We all know that texting while driving is illegal.
Even though there is a constant flood of information regarding the dangers of distracted driving, I continue to see motorists using their cell phones while operating their vehicles. Distracted driving is dangerous not only to the negligent drivers themselves, but to anyone else out on the road.
For this reason, hand-held cell phones have been banned across most of the country. Unfortunately, however, this has not stopped countless drivers from engaging in this illegal activity of from taking their attention away from the road in a variety of other ways.
I cannot stress enough - Do not be a victim of their ignorance. Protect yourself and your family by driving with a heightened awareness. Leave enough room between you and the car ahead in case you need to suddenly stop. Drive the speed limit and always wear your seatbelt.
Driving distracted is a problem we all have to contend with. There are many ways in which a driver can distract him or herself from their surroundings while behind the wheel, including texting, sending emails, using a navigation system, listing to loud music or even talking hands-free on their cell phone. Because of this, distracted driving accidents account for hundreds of thousands of injuries every year in the United States, as well as thousands of deaths.
Be on the lookout for districted drivers and steer clear of them.
