A Reminder: Don’t Text and Drive

No Texting While Driving - NBA Insurance Agency, Inc. - NBAInsurance.com

Massachusetts banned texting while driving back in July 2010 and yet numbers show that the ban may be ineffective. According to Fox, for every two-hundred speeding tickets issued, there is only one ticket issued for texting while driving. This great difference suggests that it is harder for police to enforce a no-texting law than it is to enforce speeding laws.

However, this ban should be taken seriously. At red lights especially, I notice other drivers texting. I’ve even seen some playing with their iPads. Enough is enough!

A recent study found that texting while driving doubles the time it takes drivers to react -increasing their odds of crashing.
