Simply put, texting and driving is a national epidemic.
According to the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Motor Vehicle Safety team, EVERY DAY at least nine people are killed and more than 1,000 are injured in wrecks with distracted drivers. Most of those wrecks involve texting and driving.
Someone who sends or reads just ONE text message takes their eyes and complete attention off the road for about five seconds. At 55 mph, that’s enough time to cover a football field.
If the same person reads a text, and then sends another, you’re talking about more than double the time, and more than double the distance.
That’s why texting and driving is so incredibly dangerous. Despite these FACTS, insurance companies refuses to be fair or even reasonable to victims of texting and driving (and other distracted driving).
People call us every day for just this reason: insurance companies ignore reality and reason so they can profit at your expense. It’s not fair that you were hurt, it’s even less fair to expect you to take on responsibility for injuries and damages that a distracted driver caused.
