Texting Drivers More Likely To Crash

A study published by the journal of Human Factors concluded that texting drivers are six times more likely to crash than drivers who are not texting. Using simulator vehicles, researchers concluded that texting is even significantly more dangerous than using a cell phone. People on cell phones are four times more likely to crash than drivers who are not on a cell phone studies have shown. In Chicago and in the whole state of Illinois, as of January 1, 2010 it will be illegal to text and drive.
