NATIONAL – In a recent survey, experts have discovered that more teens are texting while driving. Because teens are using cell phones more than ever before, many are using cell phones in ways that are dangerous, with more than a third admitting that they have sent a text message while driving.
Using a cell phone while driving is often a recipe for disaster. According to information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2009, 995 of 5,474 traffic accident fatalities involved reports of a cell phone as a distraction. In fact, cell phone use played a role in 18 percent of all fatal distracted driving crashes.
