Texting While Driving Is A Serious Concern

As New York lawmakers pass laws to make penalties for texting while driving stronger, a study came out that shows texting while driving produces more deaths among teens than driving while intoxicated. This statistic is startling and crystalizes the importance of inexperienced teen drivers remaining focused while driving. “This is an epidemic that people need to hear about. It will save lives,” comments experienced car accident lawyer David Scher of Block O’Toole & Murphy.
