Why does texting and driving cause accidents? Texting while behind the wheel is extremely dangerous because it takes the driver’s eyes off the road. Drivers who text tell themselves that it’s only for a few seconds and don’t think it’s a big deal. In those few seconds, however, a distracted driver can cause fatal consequences to other motorists who are paying attention. Research indicates that sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for five seconds. At 55 mph, that is like driving the length of an entire football field, blindfolded.
Because texting and driving is against the law, it’s no surprise that negligent drivers often deny doing it. Don’t expect much help from the insurance company, either. Insurance companies are mostly interested in protecting their profits, so they will try to pay you as little as possible. They have several tactics they use to try to limit your compensation.
