Distracted Driving Lawyer in Harrisburg, PA

Pursuing Compensation for Texting & Driving Injury Claims

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of auto and truck accidents in America. Distracted driving appears in many forms; however, cell phones lead the pack as especially dangerous distractions to drivers. Texting has hit the headlines year after year as one of the worst forms of distracted driving.

The level of distraction caused by texting while driving has proven to be deadly. Studies from the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that texting while driving boosts the risk of a car accident 23 times more than if a driver was not texting. Some studies have even compared the risks of texting while driving to drunk driving.

Pennsylvania Texting While Driving Ban

Many states have either passed or are considering passing legislation against cell phone use while driving. On March 8, 2012, Pennsylvania became the 35th state to pass a "texting-while-driving ban." The law prohibits using a cell phone to send, read or write any text-based communication while driving.

Although a number of laws are already in place nationwide, many people still put themselves and others at risk in order to text while driving. A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that nearly 20% of all drivers admitted to sending texts or email from behind the wheel.

That number spikes up to 50% of drivers 21-24 years old. Numerous deaths and injuries occur yearly because of this entirely preventable distraction. As these types of accidents continue to occur, everyone needs to be aware of just how dangerous texting while driving can be.
