Texting While Driving: The Most Common Form of Distracted Driving

According to recent studies, driving while using a cell phone is comparable to driving with a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08%. Knowing this, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that approximately 23% of all auto accidents in the United States are contributed to cell phone use. That’s about 1.3 million crashes per year.

While most people are aware of the risks, drivers continue to use their phones while behind the wheel—endangering not only themselves, but others on the road. That’s why our Atlanta car accident attorneys at Pratt Clay are committed to helping victims of distraction-related car accidents seek the compensation they deserve and need.

Other forms of distracted driving may include:

  • Eating or drinking
  • Applying makeup
  • Talking to passengers
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting the radio
