The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center Now Warns Texting And Driving Kills More Teenagers Than Drinking And Driving
Date:6/10/2013

(PRWEB) June 10, 2013

The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center says, "On May 9th CBS New revealed texting while driving has surpassed drinking and driving as the leading cause of death among teens. More than 3,000 teens die annually from texting while driving, compared to about 2,700 for driving under the influence of alcohol." According to the National Transportation Board, "A texting driver is 23 times more likely to get into a crash than a non-texting drivers. The average text takes a driver’s eyes off the road for nearly five seconds. When traveling at 55mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field. The message being conveyed is that texting while driving isn't multitasking, it’s essentially driving blind." The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center is now calling on all state legislatures, and city counsels of all major US cities to adopt very strict penalties for texting while driving.

According to NBC News on April 8th 2013, "At any moment on a regular weekday in 2011, about 660,000 people across the U.S. were sitting in the drivers seat and talking on their cell phones. Twice that number were engaging with their mobile device in some way, checking calendar appointments perhaps, replying to email or planning a route on their maps app." The Semi Truck Accident Victims Center says, "Texting has surpassed drunk drivers as the leading cause of death with teenagers. We are victims advocates, and we are urging all local, or national news organizations to get this message out to their viewers, or listeners. Saving the life of just one teenager, would make the effort worthwhile." http://SemiTruckAccidentVictimsCenter.Com
