Texting While Driving Is Illegal In Texas
We all have had a moment where we took our eyes off the road. Whether changing the song on the radio or reaching to grab something, just a split second of inattention can cause a devastating accident. Under Texas law, it is illegal to send text messages or use your phone while driving. This law makes a range of other activities such as emailing, posting to social media and checking game scores illegal to do behind the wheel.
Offenders will be charged with a misdemeanor and face moderate court fees. This is as it should be. Roughly one out of every four auto accidents is caused by distracted driving. This leads to hundreds of thousands of injuries and thousands of deaths. Texting drivers are six times more likely to get into an accident than drunk drivers. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a collision with a distracted driver, our attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help. It’s important to hold the responsible party accountable; our lawyers have more than 60 combined years of experience doing exactly that. Based in New Braunfels and serving clients throughout the region, our team is always prepared to provide top-quality legal assistance.
