New Survey Says Texas Texting While Driving Is Getting Worse

Readers of our blog and website know that I have written extensively on texting while driving.    You would think that after all of the publicity about the dangers associated with texting while driving that the problem would be getting better.  But if Texas drivers are to be believed, it’s not.  Yesterday, the Texas Transportation Institute released a survey of Texas drivers that concluded that the problem is getting worse.

It has finally reached a point that legislative intervention might be coming.  Our legislature will convene in a few short weeks, and bills have already been produced that would limit ban or limit texting while driving.  Frankly, I think it’s sad that it’s come to this.  Shouldn’t people be smart enough to know that this behavior is dangerous and unacceptable?  Judging by the number of clients we have coming in who we suspect were hit by people texting, people aren’t that smart.

This is something that I have an interest in, and I’ll try to keep you posted on the prognosis of the legislation during the session.
