Texting While Driving
Greensboro Car Accident Attorney Assisting Victims
When driver's turn their attention away from the road, they can end
up causing serious
car accidents—even if they are only looking away for a few moments. Texting and
driving is becoming one of the most common forms of distraction on the
road. Reading or sending text messages while behind the wheel creates
three different forms of distraction:
Manual Distraction - The driver needs to use his/her hands.
Visual Distraction - The driver's eyes are diverted to the cell phone and away from the road
Cognitive Distraction - The driver is no longer mentally paying attention to driving

Texting & Driving Statistics
When drivers receive or send text messages, they end up taking their eyes
off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, according to Virginia Tech
Transportation Institute (VTTI) data cited on
Distraction.gov. Within this timeframe, a vehicle going 55 miles per hour can travel the
distance of an entire football field. VTTI data also shows that text messaging
makes drivers 23 times more likely to get in crashes than drivers who
are not distracted.
