Rockport Texting and Trucking
Unfortunately it is very common in today’s technological world to text and drive. We have all heard or know someone who has been affected by an accident that was caused by a driver who was texting. In 2011 there were 3,092 fatalities caused by distracted driving according to the National Traffic and Safety administration.
Distracted driving is any activity that can divert a person's attention away from driving. Distracted behavior endangers the driver, passenger, and bystanders and often results in accidents that cause bodily injury. Drivers have always had distractions available to them while driving, but texting is considered the most alarming distraction because it requires simultaneous visual, manual, and cognitive attention. As a result, Texas has passed legislation that directly bans handheld devices and texting while driving. Unfortunately drivers do not always adhere to the law and this results to accidents.
Nothing can be worse that being involved in an accident where a truck driver was texting and driving. Accidents caused by truck drivers often cause more sever injuries that accidents caused by passenger vehicles.
