How much more dangerous is texting and driving?
You hear people say that texting and driving is dangerous. Even so, you know that people still do it all the time. Part of the reason is that they just do not really grasp how much more dangerous it is.
If you had to guess, what would you say? Would you say it doubles your odds of getting into a car accident? Do you think it’s twice as dangerous? That sounds like quite a jump. If you could cut your accident odds in half simply by putting the phone away, it just makes sense to do it.
But here’s the reality: It’s much worse than that. Some studies claim it is 23 times as likely that you will get into an accident while texting.
That’s an astounding jump. The next time that you think about reading or sending a text message behind the wheel, consider just how important that message actually is to you or the other party. Is it worth making your odds of an accident skyrocket?
You may say no, after looking at these statistics, but that’s only half of the battle. You can avoid texting and driving yourself, but you still have to share the road with a lot of drivers who do not understand the risks and who text regularly behind the wheel. They cause accidents every day, and you could get seriously injured in one of these crashes.
If that happens, make sure you know if you have a right to financial compensation for lost wages, high medical bills, pain and suffering and much more.
