Driving while Intexicated

ImageMany people today use text messaging over phone calls to communicate with one another. While texting can save you from small talk, awkward pauses in conversation and has the capability of getting straight to the point, texting can also cost you your life or the life of another. According to textinganddrivingsafety.com, in 2011, at least 23% of auto collisions involved cell phones. It is estimated that texting while driving makes an accident 23 more times likely! Due to the rising number of accidents resulting in part from texting and driving, many states have made it illegal to text and drive. Washington was the first state to pass a law banning texting and driving. Today, the majority of states have laws banning texting and driving.

Much of the media has put out the message that a text can wait and I can totally agree with that. Texting and driving is most common amongst young adults. Just recently, Socastee High School students took a pledge not to text and drive. You hear the stories and you may even witness an accident that resulted from texting and driving but can you imagine your child being the cause of the accident or the victim of the accident?

Texting is not the only distraction that a phone brings, many people surf the web while they are driving or post to their social media sites. The bottom line is, every driver owes a duty of care to act as a prudent careful driver. The law states you must use reasonable care in operating a motor vehicle. If you or your loved one was injured due to the carelessness of another driver, then contact Daniel Selwa today. Act quickly by contacting your local attorney so that the careless driver does not make the same mistake of texting and driving twice.
