Texting while driving continues to increase and is a very dangerous distraction. Texting while driving causes you to take your eyes off the road, your hands off of the wheel, and your mind off of driving. These three forms of distractions, whether individually or combined, can lead to a fatal accident. When texting or using your cell phone and driving combines all three distractions at one time, which makes it especially dangerous.
Michigan law prohibits texting while driving. Texting and driving, or any cell phone use, has become a very dangerous epidemic that causes accidents that result in serious or life-threatening injuries. These accidents occur every day.
