Oh Good!, I'm OK, I don't text at all.
Unfortunately, there's still a chance that someone could still crash into you that is texting. It's also just talking on cellphones while driving that's a common issue, despite being illegal in most states I still see lots of people using their phones while driving and lots of them do get into accidents.
They say texting can typically cause a 5 second delay, or more, from paying attention driving, and also talking and driving is equivalent to someone driving after having one beer and I believe it...
I just saw someone rear end someone else near a yield sign for getting onto the main road, with traffic clearly blocking immediate access, just last week and there are often accident reports in my area every week... Higher insurance rates just makes it more a pain!
All combined with the fact a lot of people, in the state I'm in at least, seem to like to tailgate means you never know when someone might ram into you that's not paying proper attention.
Never mind those people who think they can multi-task and do several things at the same time they're driving! Often doing some combination of talking on the phone, texting, looking at a tablet, reading a book, eating, etc.
Sometimes I feel like I'm driving through a survival course rather than just commuting to work @_@
Texting while driving is a very bad hobbit for drivers. The Department of Transportation, among other bodies and the general public as a whole, is worried about texting while driving , which is really dangerous. Most states have texting while driving regulations which prohibit it, but the DOT has thrown $550,000 toward studying whether such regulations have an impact.
