Distracted Driving Comes in Many Forms

Texting while driving is one of the leading causes of distracted driving and serious motor vehicle crashes in the United States. In fact, a study conducted by the Texas A&M University’s Transportation Institute showed that reaction time of a person texting and driving can be up to two times slower than if they were focused on the road.

Texting while driving is not the only dangerous activity drivers engage in with their phones. Many drivers are also guilty of:

  • Checking their email
  • Surfing the web
  • Receiving updates for sports scores
  • Playing games
  • Taking photos or videos of passengers
