The Dangers of Texting While Driving

The everyday motorist can't help but notice the steady increase in both the average speed and the amount of traffic in the San Francisco area. While our vehicles have become safer and the rules of the road are clearly marked and enforced, the unfortunate truth is that the number of car accidents and fatalities continue to increase.

Cases of driver distraction are the most common reason behind dangerous or deadly car accidents. Texting while driving has become a serious problem in California and puts countless drivers and their families at risk every day. As of January 1, 2009, the Wireless Communications Device Law went into full effect making it illegal to text and drive while operating a motor vehicle, this includes while sitting at a red light or in a traffic jam. The fines for texting and driving vary by county. Sadly, drivers who text while behind the wheel often cause more harm than just violating the law.

The Impact of Texting

A recent study has established that drivers that are distracted by their cell phones have their reflexes and reactions slowed to the same level as a drunk driver. Texting while driving demands even more attention.
