Talking on Your Cell Phone or Texting While Driving in Ohio
Talking on the phone or texting while driving is common, but a growing number of states are beginning to crack down on the practice in order to prevent accidents and improve road safety. Driver inattention causes around 25% of car accidents.
Texting is an extremely dangerous distraction because it takes your eyes off the road and puts other people in danger. You are 23 times more likely to crash while texting and driving. Ohio was the 39th state to pass a texting ban in May 2012.
