Texting & Driving

Distracted driving is considered to be one of the leading causes of collisions on our roadways and research shows you are four times more likely to be involved in a collision if you are using a cell phone.  That number jumps sharply when a driver is involved in texting and driving.  A texting distracted driver is 23 times more likely to be involved in a collision or a near collision.

Using a cell phone while driving can carry a fine of $400.00 plus a victim surcharge and court fee of $90.00 for a total of nearly $500.00.
