Government Study Shows that Texting While Driving is on the Rise

Federal officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported on December 8, 2011, that texting while driving increased 50% despite that fact that many states have implemented laws to ban the practice. The NHTSA surveyed 6,000 driver age 18 or older in telephone surveys and found that incidence of younger drivers texting while driving is much more likely than in older drivers.

This increase in texting while driving is troubling given the increased awareness of the hazards that it presents. Just today it was reported that a 19 year old driver involved in a deadly collision in Missouri last year sent or received 11 texts in the 11 minutes before the accident. His pickup truck ultimately crashed into the back of another vehicle and caused a chain reaction that resulted in multiple deaths.

As a personal injury law firm in Atlanta, we have seen the devastating effects that can occur when people text and drive. Aside from serious personal injuries and wrongful death, texting while driving can lead to more minor incidents, and ultimately an increase in insurance premiums, a traffic ticket or possibly the loss of driving privileges. At Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C., we ask that you simply put the phone down while driving. No text message is more important than the health and well-being of yourself and others on the roadway.
