Texting & Driving: Let’s Look at the Stats

In many states, it’s currently illegal to text while driving. However, this doesn’t stop most people from doing it anyway — especially younger demographics. On average, 69 percent of all drivers admit to using their cell phones while behind the wheel. This is an alarming statistic, especially considering that a fourth of all annual automobile accidents are caused by texting and driving. This equates to roughly 330,000 accidents per year that occur as a result of texting behind the wheel. Ouch.

Every auto accident lawyer from Salt Lake City to the East Coast has heard the horror stories involved with texting while driving; here are some cold, hard statistics to support the case against it.
