What is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road. All distracted driving is dangerous for our safety. However, the most common types of distracted driving are:

  • Talking on a cell phone
  • Using a navigation system
  • Texting and Driving

Texting and driving is the most dangerous form of distracted driving. Text messaging requires manual and visual attention. When a driver chooses to text and drive they violate the safety rules that protect us all.

Texting and Driving Facts and Statistics

  • 5 seconds is the average time a driver’s eyes are away from the road when texting;
  • When traveling at 55mph, that’s enough time to cover the length of a football field blindfolded.
  • A driver texting while driving is 23 times more likely to cause a wreck than driving while not distracted

Texting While Driving Is Still Legal In Texas

Texas is one a few states that has failed to pass a State wide law against texting while driving. Many cities have texting while driving bans. However, most cities, including Fort Worth, do not have a ban. The only State wide recognized laws against cell phone use, including texting and driving are:

  • School Zones: No cell phone use of any kind is permitted in Texas school zones.
  • Minor Drivers: Texas minors are not permitted to use cell phones at all until they are 18 and also for the first six months after they get their learner’s permits.
  • Commercial Bus Drivers: Bus drivers are not permitted to use cell phones at all while driving while in Texas.
