Texting and Driving: Compounding Distractions
Texting while driving is considered one of the most dangerous distracted driving behaviors. Sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes away from the road for an average of just under 5 seconds; anyone driving 55 mph will travel the equivalent distance of a football field in that time.
There are three primary forms of distraction, which include:
- Visual – Taking your eyes off the road
- Manual – Moving your hands away from the steering wheel
- Cognitive – Taking your mind off the primary task of driving
While reading and answering a text message, the driver is distracted in all three ways. Studies have shown that this type of driving can be just as dangerous, if not more, than driving while drunk.
Other common forms of distraction include:
- Cell phone usage
- Passenger distractions
- Looking at something inside the car
- Looking at outside objects
- Personal grooming

There’s a reason texting and driving has been prohibited in many places across the U.S. It puts everyone else on the road in danger, even if the driver thinks it will just take a second to respond. There is no safe way to text and drive, and if you are hit by someone who is distracted in this way, you are likely eligible for compensation.
