In the United States, distracted driving accounts for hundreds of thousands of automobile accidents every year. In recent years, accidents caused by texting while driving has contributed to an exponential increase of these distraction related crashes. According to distraction.gov, the Official US Government Website for Distracted Driving, 20 percent of injury crashes in 2009 involved reports of distracted driving.
Drivers who use hand-held devices like cell phones are four times as likely to cause crashes resulting in injury or fatality than non-distracted drivers. Studies performed by the University of Utah prove that using a cell-phone while driving delays a driver’s reaction times as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. It’s no surprise, then, that the number of automobile accidents related to “Texting and Driving” continues to increase.
