Texting While Driving - All You Need to Know
Texting While Driving - the guide to everything necessary to learn, spread awareness and protect yourself from this devastating bad and now illegal habit.
At 1800Mobiles we have been quite vocal about the "idiotic" practice of texting or emailing while driving. We have covered stories following which states have passed laws against it as well as tests measuring the dangers of texting while driving when compared to driving while intoxicated. We even covered the story of that "genius" lady who wanted to sue the mall where she fell into the fountain while texting. Now this story got more personal.
One of our co-founders was at a red light while on vacation with his wife and one year old daughter. Another text and driving genius didn't see the red light; didn't see the stalled car; and drove into his car. All three (except the genius) were brought to the hospital. A few weeks later we are happy to report everybody involved is alive and well. Except for one thing. Texting and driving continues and it is only getting worse. after these news I have been personally looking into fellow drivers cars. Literally one every 5 cars I looked into has one idiot at the phone either talking or texting.
As more and more states keep on adding laws against this illogical behavior, please consult this official State Cell Phone Use and Texting While Driving Laws list.
We will do our part to continue keeping you informed and personally fight the war against these ignorant drivers by supporting companies that develop technology to prevent the use of a phone while in a car and organizations that promote awareness and protect the victims of texters-drivers. join us in our national effort to end text and driving once and for all.
Comment: I think texting and driving and talking on that dam phone while driving is just as bad as drinking and driving. I have talked to several different people about being on that phone behind the wheel. When I explained how many lives are at risk they cant believe it...but have agreed to stop. They show commercials about lives being ruined and lost.I cry every time I see them cause it breaks my heart. There is no text message or call that is worth changing lives. Im very glad they show those commercials cause even though they break my heart I pray it reaches out to all those that dont take this seriously! Thank you and God bless!!
