The Known Dangers of Texting While Driving
Distracted driving refers to any activity that could divert a driver’s attention away from the primary task of driving. While all distractions endanger driver, passenger, and pedestrian safety, texting while driving is by far the most alarming form of driver distraction that exists today.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has been leading the movement against distracted driving. According to the NHTSA, distracted driving is a dangerous epidemic that resulted in 3,328 fatalities and approximately 421,000 injuries in 2012 alone.
The NHTSA has presented the following facts about texting while driving:
- 71 percent of teens say they have composed/sent text messages while driving.
- At any given moment, 660,000 drivers in the U.S. are using their cell phones or electronic devices.
- Your eyes are off the road for an average of five seconds while texting. At 55 mph, that’s the equivalent of driving the length of a football field while blindfolded.

In Georgia, there is a ban on all cell phone use for bus drivers and novice drivers, and there is a statewide ban on texting while driving for all drivers. While these bans were put in place for good reason, not all drivers act responsibly and follow the rules.
