New Mexico Texting & Driving Crashes
Texting behind the wheel is one of the most common and dangerous forms of driver distraction. A significant number of fatal crashes in the United States involve distracted motorists. According to recent statistics, 6% of all drivers involved in a deadly collision were distracted at the time of the crash.
Cell phone use is the most common distraction for drivers from 15 to 29 years of age. It should be no surprise that young motorists use their phones most frequently when operating a motor vehicle. A crash can happen in as little as three seconds.
