In September of 2017, Texas became the 48th state to ban texting while driving. The ban on texting and driving was enacted in response to the devastating impacts people in Texas have suffered as a result of distracted driving.
For example, in 2016, Texas saw approximately 500 deaths and over 3,000 injuries from auto, truck and other motor vehicle crashes caused by distracted drivers who were texting and driving.
Congress, police and other safety authorities are hoping the ban will curb texting and driving, which will in turn, prevent accidents and save lives.
