Albuquerque Texting & Driving Accidents
The distraction posed by smartphones cannot be understated. It is perhaps one of the direst concerns facing roadway safety in the United States. Sending text messages requires the driver to take his or her focus off the road, creating cause for concern.
Even looking away from the road for five seconds is enough to cause a serious car accident. When traveling at highway speeds, a driver can travel the entire length of a football field during this time. An astounding 1.6 million car accidents are attributed to texting and driving each year.
