Since the advent of smart phones and other handheld electronic communication devices, many individuals are obsessed with these gadgets, and can’t seem to stop themselves from reading or sending text messages while they are behind the wheel.
According to a study recently released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 5,400 people were killed in car crashes which were reportedly caused by motorists that were texting while driving at the same time. That’s a staggering 15 people being taken from families and loved ones all across the nation each and every day.
Although laws have been passed to punish those who are caught, unfortunately, laws don’t always work. In many cases, the deterrents are simply not enough to inhibit those who have a need to use with their handheld devices when in transit to their given destination.
As the statistics show, many serious auto collisions are the result of this irresponsible driving behavior – some of which include:
…. just to name a few.
