Nashville Texting While Driving Accident Attorney
Texting and Driving Accidents
Texting while driving may be the single most dangerous behavior on Tennessee’s roads. Research has shown that most Americans now prefer texting to making a phone call! This does not bode well for the rate of traffic crashes. A Virginia Tech Transportation Institute study determined that a person sending or reading a text message is a whopping 23 times more likely to be in a crash.
Other research backs that finding up. A Texas Transportation Institute study at Texas A&M University used real cars instead of simulations to test driver reaction time while texting. The study found that driver reaction times slowed by more than four seconds when sending or reading a text message, and drivers were ten times more likely to miss signal lights. Drivers who were texting also lost their ability to maintain a consistent speed.
