Driver Distraction
#1 Rule – PAY ATTENTION TO THE ROAD, and the driving task at hand.

Drivers using mobile devices and cell phones have a higher risk of collision. Collision rates are higher even for drivers using hands-free devices.

Teenagers are the highest risk group for not paying attention to the road to concentrate on mobile devices. They are also the age group most likely to take risks behind the wheel. The National Safety Council reports that traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for teenagers, accounting for 44 percent of teen fatalities.

Texas has no law at this time banning cell phone use while driving. So use common sense. The safest advice, if you must use your phone, is to pull over. Or wait until you reach your destination to make the call or text.
