Dangers of Texting While Driving

According to studies, a person using a cellphone while driving has an impaired reaction time similar to that of an individual who is legally intoxicated. When texting, a driver must take his or her eyes off the road for several seconds to type or read a message. When a driver’s attention is not focused on the primary task of driving, he or she may not be able to react properly in time to avoid any unexpected situations on the road.

In Connecticut, it is illegal to type, send, or read a text message with a hand-held device. If a person engages in texting while driving and causes an accident, the fact that they were committing an illegal act is enough evidence to prove negligence.
