“Texting while driving makes you 23 times
more likely to have an accident.”
– one of the facts available at allstate.com
Ah, but it is really an “accident” if you were texting before it happened? Isn’t more like a negative event resulting from doing something foolish?
Anyway, Allstate Insurance has become one more of a large number of companies and organizations to begin campaigning against people sending text messages while driving. As we’ve pointed out before, texting is one of the most distracting things that a driver can do, making them every bit as dangerous on the road as a drunk driver.
At Allstate’s landing page dedicated to distracted driving, you can get important facts, find the applicable laws for your state, and get information about stopping this dangerous practice in your area, your workplace, and your own family.
