The topic of texting while driving has become the talk of the nation. Distracted driving was responsible for 6,000 deaths and 500,000 traffic related injuries in 2008 alone. The amazing part about these statistics is that those numbers are expected to triple over the next year.
There are three main types of distraction:
1) Visual --Taking Your Eyes Off the Road
2) Manual --Taking Your Hands Off The Wheel
3) Cognitive --Taking Your Minds Off What You Are Doing
Texting Includes All Three!
19 States already ban texting while driving with more to follow suit in the coming months.
"We want the drivers of big rigs and buses and those who share the roads with them to be safe," said Secretary LaHood. "This is an important safety step and we will be taking more to eliminate the threat of distracted driving." Truck and bus drivers who text while driving commercial vehicles may be subject to civil or criminal penalties of up to $2,750.00
