Head-On Collisions in Texas
According to the National Safety Council, about 1.6 million car accidents occur every year because of drivers using their cell phones while on the road. Around 390,000 people sustain injuries annually as a result of drivers texting while driving. The government is encouraging drivers to invest in hands-free devices if they absolutely must communicate while driving. Even though drivers believe they can multi-task while on their phones, that assumption has been proven inaccurate especially since hundreds of thousands of people keep getting harmed annually.
