In this day and age, people are glued to their phones.  Whether we want to admit it or not, we have all fought the urge at some point or another to text or talk on the phone while we are driving.  Even though it might just be one short text or call, it could have horrible, long-lasting consequences.  The following are some reasons you should think twice before texting and driving.

1. According to a study done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, driver distraction was the cause of 18% of all fatal crashes and crashes resulting in injury, with a total of 3,328 fatalities and 421,000 wounded.
2. Texting while driving makes you 23 times more likely to crash compared to driving without distraction, as reported by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.
3. According to the Federal Communications Commission, 11% of 18 to 20 year old drivers who were involved in a car accident admitted that the reason for their crash was due to sending or receiving a text message.

To prevent against the damage that could potentially be caused by texting and driving, make sure you have the right coverage on your car insurance for yourself and your family members.
