Facts about Texting & Driving Accident Cases
Texting while behind the wheel is a substantial factor in the injuries and deaths of innocent people on Missouri roadways.
Texting while driving involves all three forms of distraction, which are:
- Visual distraction, in which the driver’s eyes are taken off the road
- Manual distraction, in which the driver’s hands are taken off the wheel
- Cognitive distraction, in which the driver’s attention is taken off the task of driving
This multi-factored distraction endangers the lives of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians nearby. It is a clear form of negligence. Unfortunately, in Missouri it is only illegal for those under the age of 21 to text while driving. That does not excuse it as negligence in any crash any driver may cause.
