Texting While Driving
The modern, technology-driven society in which we live has allowed us to communicate more easily and to multitask more effectively. However, there are still certain situations that call for our complete attention, and driving is one of them.
While text messaging is a useful way of reaching friends and loved ones, texting while driving has become one of the most serious problems we face on the road. Sadly, the number of deaths associated with texting while driving is a serious cause for concern.
Whether you are driving on the busy roads of Minneapolis or Saint Paul or on a rural highway or county road, an accident can occur within seconds. Drivers cannot afford to divert their attention from the road. Unfortunately, many drivers do elect to operate their vehicles and text on their phones at the same time. The experienced auto accident lawyers at GoldenbergLaw have seen the devastating consequences of these actions.
People of all ages have been caught texting while driving, but teenage drivers’ habits are particularly concerning. A recent study showed that nearly 60% of high school seniors acknowledged that they text while driving.1 Another study showed that texting while driving is the most common cause of death among teens in the U.S., surpassing alcohol-related deaths.2
