imageIt use to be that the number one cause of teen driving accidents was excessive speed. Now rapidly climbing the list of causes is text messaging. It seems that text messaging while driving is becoming a common thing, but with it comes tragedy. A study conducted by the Virginia-based Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that people using a cell phone while driving were four times more likely to get into an accident.

Being in the industry we are in, we unfortunately get to see the results of Texting While Driving, and the results are never good.

It is not just teenagers that find it difficult to not text and drive. Research conducted by Nationwide Insurance proposes that DWT (Driving While Texting) is generational, with 46 percent of drivers’ ages 16 to 17 admit to texting while driving, while just 14 percent of those ages 28 to 44 and only 2% percent of drivers ages 45 to 60 admitted to it. These numbers are in response to a massive statistics that suggest Driving While Texting becomes the killer monster in the road.

I myself admit to doing a lot of texting while driving, but after watching the video below, I will think twice about replying to the next text I get while behind the wheel.
