Texting While Driving: How Dangerous is it? – Car and Driver

Last updated 7 years ago

You’ve probably heard that texting while driving is bad––bad enough that some states have laws against it. But you might be skeptical or wonder if it’s really as dangerous as some people claim.

In this video, Car and Driver puts these claims to test by comparing the reaction times of two subjects––first driving unimpaired, then while texting and driving, and finally while intoxicated.  They found that texting increased reaction time even more than being over the legal limit. Texting or talking on a cell phone is a common occurrence––which puts us all at risk for an accident.

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver was using a cell phone or was otherwise at fault, then contact The Carlson Law Firm at (888) 335-7492 for help.
