Throughout South Texas, Texting While Driving Causes Crashes

Distracted driving has always been one of the risks involved in traffic. Dangers posed by drivers who groom themselves, fiddle with cigarette lighters or radio dials, or engage in spirited conversation with passengers have been common for years. In addition to these, the most prominent form of distracted driving today is texting and driving. This is the case in South Texas as in other areas of the state and the country. In the Eagle Ford Shale region, traffic congestion, late working hours and driver fatigue all contribute to the hazards posed by texting while driving.

Use of cellphones, tablet computers and GPS systems may fall within the category of "texting while driving," since this type of activity normally takes a driver's hands, eyes and attention from the challenge of guiding a car. Usually at speeds of 25 to 65 miles per hour, any interruption of a driver's attention is risky. The risk extends to passengers in that car and anyone else who is in traffic nearby, such as other drivers and passengers as well as bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorcyclists.
