Texting and driving does not mix.

According to a 2009 Pew Reasearch Poll study 34% of all American teens ages 16-17 admitted to texting while driving. Boys and girls showed equal prevelance for texting. Four in ten teens questioned in the survey stated they had been in a car when the driver was distracted and texting putting everyone in the car in danger. A typical teen sends and receives about 100 text messages a day, and it’s the most common way many kids communicate with their peers. “A lot of teens say `Well, if the car’s not moving and I’m at a stoplight or I’m stuck in traffic, that’s OK,'” said Lenhart, who has done focus groups with teens on the topic.

Other teens acknowledge that it’s not safe, but they think it is safer if they hold the phone up so they can see the road and text at the same time, she said. Texting while driving is as dangerous as driving with a blood alcohol at the legal limit of .08. 32 states prohibit novice drivers from cell phone use while driving. Albuquerque and Santa Fe have laws against talking on a cell phone while driving. Depending on the case, texting may be included as a cause for seeking just compensation for injuries from an accident.
