Cell Phone and Texting Causes Truck Accident

Truck drivers who talk on cell phones or communicate by texting pose a serious safety risk on our roads and highways. Serious accidents caused by texting have increased drastically with the growing popularity of handheld electronic devices like cell phones and smartphones.

The federal Department of Transportation reports that annually more than 5,000 traffic fatalities and nearly 450,000 injuries are blamed on traffic accidents caused by distracted drivers, including driving and texting accidents. Recent studies show that 16 percent of fatal crashes are blamed on driver distraction.
