A recent study shows that text messaging while driving is very dangerous and more likely to lead to car accidents than previously suspected. The study showed that the risk was up to 23 times greater that a car accident would occur while texting than it was while not texting. The danger is due to the fact that the drivers get distracted and take their eyes of the road, which can lead to car crashes. Fourteen states currently ban text-messaging while driving, because of the dangers of texting while driving. For more information on this recent study, click here.
