Ways Texting can Impair Drivers

Many people believe they are capable of multitasking while driving. Some drivers are not fully aware of how much their driving abilities are impaired by texting. Some of the things a driver may not notice while texting and driving are:

  • Driving too closely behind another vehicle
  • Not noticing pedestrians walking at an intersection or crosswalk
  • Disrupting the flow of traffic by being inattentive
  • Missing stop signs or not yielding at the appropriate times
  • Driving through red lights

Driving a vehicle is a privilege that needs to be handled responsibly. When a driver exhibits behaviors commonly associated with texting, he or she is posing a great risk of harm to other drivers and pedestrians.
