People Continue To Text And Drive

text messaging while drivingA new texting while driving survey done by AT&T found that 98 percent of motorists who text regularly know the dangers of texting while driving, but 75 percent of them admit texting while driving anyway.

That’s not surprising, in our practice, we regularly see people who are seriously injured because of people texting while driving.

The good news is that we’re finally seeing some things done about it.  The study results were released as part of an effort by AT&T to publicize a new phone app for AT&T customers that silences text message alerts and activates automatically when a person is moving 15 miles per hour or faster.    The DriveMode app will be coming to iPhones shortly and will soon be available to other carriers.
