Texting and Driving Related Accidents

Today, text messaging has become the main form of communication due to the fast and easy responses available at any time. Sadly, people do not realize how important it is to put aside their phone when they get behind the wheel. An overwhelming amount of drivers don’t think twice before responding to a text message. It is no secret that texting while driving a car is a dangerous and irresponsible combination. However, people continue to do it. Many laws have been enacted with the hopes of stopping texting while driving, but this has not stopped everyone.

Texting and Driving Signs

There are many road hazards a driver needs to pay attention to. Texting causes a person to be extremely distracted. Within a split second, one text message can change everything. People often feel that they are capable of texting and driving. In reality, none of us are as capable as we think we are when it comes to multi-tasking with two attention-demanding tasks. If someone is texting and driving on the road, common driving dangers include:

  • Swerving into other lanes
  • Sudden stops
  • Looking distracted
  • Inconsistent speeds

Tips for Colorado Drivers

  • Don’t be tempted,
  • Turn off your phone
  • Keep it in a bag out of reach
  • If you have to use your phone, pull over
  • If you think you will be tempted, keep your phone in the trunk
  • Encourage others to avoid using their cellphone
  • Set a good example, don’t text and drive
