The use of cell phones while driving plays a role in 1.3 million crashes each year, causing 500,000 injuries and 6,000 deaths according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Text messaging is the most dangerous practice, making a crash 23 times more likely.

Recently the driver of a large pickup truck in the Texas Hill Country slammed head-on into a church bus, killing 12 senior citizens and their driver who were coming back from a church retreat. At least three 911 calls by citizens were made before the accident, reporting the “erratic driver” of the truck.  Two of those calls came from two different rural counties, from a driver of a car behind the truck...

Do kids and parents realize that texting is six times more likely to cause an accident than driving while intoxicated? Probably not.
