According to statistics, driver distraction, including cell phone use such as texting while driving, is a contributing factor in far too many crashes. In 2017, distracted driving was reported in crashes that killed 3,166 people on the nation’s highways. That represents roughly 9% of all fatalities on our roadways. Many experts believe the number is actually higher because many may never get reported.

It is believed that cellular phone use, including both texting and calling while driving, is one of the most common distractions for drivers. Many states and cities have passed laws against driving while using cellular phones. It is a certainty that more will do so.
