Serious automobile accidents are common on our streets and highways every day. Accidents can just happen. Our jobs as motorists is to try and minimize our risk of being in an accident. I wrote earlier this week about the dangers of driving and texting. This morning on the radio I heard that the National Transportation Safety Board is holding lengthy hearings on the problems associated with texting while driving. There have been numerous studies that have been conducted on how much of a person’s attention span is distracted when a person sends a text while driving. I can assure you that before long there is going to be legislation that prohibits and severely punished driving and texting.
