Consequences of Texting While Driving in Texas
It's important to remember that there really is no way to text and drive safely, and distracted driving can have deadly consequences. For this reason, more than 39 states, including Texas, have banned text messaging while driving.
Current Texas state laws prohibit all novice drivers and bus drivers from:
- Texting while driving
- Using handheld cell phones while driving
- Using hands-free cell phones while driving
For Dallas residents, this means that if you are caught texting behind the wheel, your carelessness can result in a hefty fine, especially if you are a repeat offender. While you might think you won't get caught by law enforcement if you keep your texting discreet, such as by holding the phone on your lap, you can still reap far worse consequences if you end up in a serious car accident because you took your eyes off the road.
Our Dallas car accident attorneys at Polewski & Associates have represented a number of victims who have suffered serious personal injuries such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, burns, loss of limbs, and multiple fractures. If you are guilty of texting while driving, you should think twice before committing this crime because you could take someone’s life in a matter of seconds.
