Dangers of Distracted Driving

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Crash & Burn: Life in the Fastlane

No matter what of Driver Safety you decide to take , you will learn the rules of the road. Any Defensive Driving Course will tell what to do and what not to do while driving. However , you do not have to take an Online Driver Safety course to learn a valuable driving rule : Do not drive while texting.

A person is 23 times more likely to crash while texting and driving. The risk of an accident rises 3-6.5 times when cellphones are involved. In one survey, 73 percent of people admitted to talking on the phone while driving. The problem is so serious that a study conducted by the University of North Texas Health Science Center found as many as 16,000 people were killed on highways nationwide between 2001 and 2007 due to accidents determined to be caused by texting or talking and driving. Texas law bars teen-age drivers from using cell phones and text messaging devices. The state also bans the use of hand-held cell phones by drivers in school crossing zones.
