Dallas Dangers of Driving and Texting

Texting while driving is a reckless activity that causes severe accidents and puts Dallas Highways drivers at risk. It is illegal to text and drive in Dallas Texas. Unfortunately, drivers continue to use cellphones for texting, talking, browsing the Internet and other activities while driving on our streets and highways.

If you have been seriously injured because of texting and driving, the skilled attorneys at Carabin & Shaw can help ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.

According to The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) texting is among the most serious and dangerous distractions facing drivers. In the 2009 NHTSA studies report that 5000 people were killed and more than 400,000 were injured as a result of drivers who were distracted. According to the US Department of Transportation there are three primary types of driver distractions. They are visual, manual, and cognitive. The visual is described as taking your eyes of the road. The manual is taking your hands of the steering wheel and the cognitive is taking your mind off of the driving. All three distractions are consistent with texting while driving.

In Texas the Distracting Driving laws are as follows:

  • Ban on all cellphones (handheld and hands free) for bus drivers, and novice drivers
  • Ban on texting for bus drivers and novice drivers
  • Ban on texting and handheld phone use in School Zones
