Why Texting & Driving is So Dangerous
Out of all the distracting activities someone can do while driving, such
as eating or conversing with passengers, texting and using a smartphone
for similar purposes is by far the most dangerous. The problem has become
so widespread that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
estimates that at least 25% of all fatal car accidents involved one or
more drivers who were sending or reading a text message. With so many
drivers engaging in cellphone use behind the wheel, the odds suggest that
the person who hit you was as well, and that they were significantly distracted.
Texting and driving is so dangerous because it engages a driver in three
forms of distraction:
Visual: The driver removes their eyes from the road to look at the smartphone or
Manual: The driver removes their hands from the steering wheel to grab their cellphone
or navigate on the hands-free display.
Cognitive: The driver removes their focus and mind from the task of driving so they
can think about what they want to say or what has been said.
