States with Primary-Offense Texting laws See Fewer Deaths

| Jul 28, 2014 | Motor Vehicle Safety

We may soon see changes in texting-while-driving laws all over the US.

According to the study, states which consider texting while driving a primary offense have seen an 11% drop in fatalities among 15- to 21-year-olds. Based on the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s most recent reports, this would mean that if Ohio adopted a similar law, Ohio might see about 31 lives saved every year. If nothing else, this study hopefully sheds light on how dangerous distracted driving can be: in 2012, 293 Ohio injuries and deaths were attributed to driving while distracted by an electronic device.

What should a driver do until Ohio treats texting and driving as a primary-offense? Don’t text and drive and keep your eyes open. Simply put: texting while driving is dangerous.
