We all have seen them. While stuck in traffic, or even while hitting high speeds on a highway or freeway, other drivers are texting and driving. If we are all honest with ourselves, it's possible that everyone has done this dangerous act at least once while behind the wheel. Since cell phones have become readily available, texting and driving has become a dangerous trend, as it is often the reason behind a person's car accident injuries.
Texting and driving is viewed as a type of distracted driving behavior that is not only dangerous, but illegal in most states. With cell phones increasing their technological capabilities, it's not just texting that could be happening when a driver is distracted by their cell phone. A driver could be posting on social media, taking a video or scrolling through their music selection. All of these behaviors fall under the category of texting while driving.
