Texting and Driving
Recent laws in many states have placed a ban on text messaging while driving. The state of Wisconsin recently passed such a bill, which means that driver caught texting and driving may be subject to traffic fines or other punishments.
Unfortunately, many drivers who send text messages while they operate their vehicles are not caught and may cause extremely serious accidents.

Recognizing the Dangers of Texting While Driving
Laws that ban texting and driving arose from statistics that showed the excessive number of serious accidents cause by drivers who text behind the wheel. Drivers who text and drive may seriously divert their attention from the road. This lack of attention puts other drivers in danger, since the texting driver is not committed to watching the road and, by extension, fellow motorists. When a texting driver causes an accident, he or she will likely be liable for any injuries that result from the collision. Victims of texting drivers may be entitled to financial compensation through legal action for their injuries and lost wages.
Texting and driving is a form of negligence that puts other motorists in danger.
