Texting While Driving

In today’s fast-paced world, we often find ourselves juggling multiple tasks simultaneously. However, there’s one activity that should never accompany driving: texting. At Local Driving School, we emphasize this crucial point: texting and driving kills.

California law strictly prohibits texting while driving, and for good reason. The consequences of distracted driving can be severe and irreversible. Even a momentary glance at a phone screen can lead to devastating outcomes on the road.

Despite legal restrictions and widespread awareness efforts, many Californian motorists still engage in this hazardous behavior, endangering themselves and others on the road. This is a stark reality that cannot be ignored.

According to recent statistics, California accounts for a significant portion of texting-related accidents in the United States. In 2020 alone, there were over 57,000 distracted driving crashes in California, making up approximately 10% of such incidents nationwide.

We implore all drivers to heed this sobering reality: texting while driving is a deadly gamble. Keep your focus on the road and your hands firmly on the wheel. Let’s collectively work towards enhancing road safety across California.

Remember, no text message is worth jeopardizing lives. Drive responsibly.
