    Texting and driving




         Texting and driving is a growing and serious issue in today's society. People in today's society are keeping connected while on their phone's and while this is good it can also be bad as well. Some people may feel like they need to respond immediately to a text message that they get and it might not even be that important. People are in such a hurry now a days that they don't have time to waste. They need to respond immediately but this can impact their lives more then they think.
     
    How does this affect others?

         When texting and driving it decreases your reaction time to a situation by 5 seconds. In those 5 seconds someone could slam their brakes on or cut in front of you or someone may even be crossing the road. You would not see any of this in time to stop for these incidents. If you had those 5 seconds available you probably would have had time to avoid the incidents. 

         In a 2011 study, 23% of all accidents are caused by cell phones, That is equivalent to 1,300,000 car crashes. Also approximately 10% of teens who text and drive drive outside of their lane. 

    How do people focus on what they are doing if they are buried in their phones? The answer is they don't. Their brain doesn't have time to react to things that happen while they drive and I see and hear about accidents all the time where someone was texting and driving and wasn't paying attention to the road so they crashed.

    couldn't agree more, it's been proven texting and driving is worse than buzzed driving

    @ozzyd94 Yes, Texting and driving is actually 23X's worse then drinking and driving. Statistics show that it takes a minimal of 5 seconds to read a text and if you are traveling at 55mph that's a whole football field or more without looking at the road. 77% of you think that it is safe to text and drive and are unaware of how dangerous this can actually be towards you and others as well. At the moment for school I am writing a 10 page research paper on how texting and driving can affect you. Ozzy if you ever do this I will kill you! sniper
