When discussing some of the most hazardous problems on the road, there are few more dangerous than when a driver is texting or otherwise using his or her cell phone while operating his or her vehicle. Texting and driving is not only illegal, it can also be harmful to others on the road.
One of the biggest problems with texting and driving is that it takes the driver’s focus off the road. Even if they’re trying to text through voice-to-text or other methods, they still lose focus on what matters most: driving safely.
Texting while driving in most instances requires the driver to look away from the road to read the text and then to see what they’re replying. Taking your eyes off the road for just a few seconds is enough to travel a good distance and when you can’t see what’s in front of you, this can be cause for a serious crash.
So many people think they can drive just as safely with one hand as they do with two, and they think that’s a valid excuse for why they can text while driving without it being dangerous. Unfortunately, there are many instances in which they are proven wrong.
It’s easy for drivers to lose control of their vehicles, especially in certain conditions. When you have one hand off the steering wheel to text, you have less chance of correcting the motion and keeping yourself, your passengers, and others on the road safe.
