Texting and Distracted Driving
With the proliferation of cell phones, distracted driving has become a pervasive threat on the nation’s roads: According to the National Safety Council, one out of every four car accidents is caused by texting while driving.
The risk can be compounded when truck drivers are the ones texting behind the wheel. Certainly, operating a tractor-trailer or semi on the highway requires skill, focus and precision, all of which are jeopardized if a driver is texting. A study found that when drivers texted, their collision risk was 23 times greater.
