Text Messaging While Driving

Comments Off

One of the hot topics in prevention of auto accidents is how to reduce the number of people (particularly teens) who text message while driving. There are numerous statistics, but I find that the video from the news story below shows a lot more than mere numbers. The story follows a Clemson study that puts teen drivers in a driving simulator and asks them to text message while “driving” in the simulator. The video documenting the difficulty driving is stunning, but more concerning is that many of the teens said they would continue to text message while driving even after their experience in the simulator.
