Texting while driving
It’s an unprecedented move by the nation’s top cell phone providers. Normally fierce competitors, the four companies have now banded together to fight the epidemic of texting and driving.
It’s illegal in Maryland to text on hand-held cell phones. Many drivers use their voice-to-text, thinking it’s a safer option but a new study shows it’s just as dangerous as typing.
In Annapolis, there’s a new push to restrict what drivers can and can’t do with their cell phones behind the wheel.
If you text and drive, you lose. That’s the message students at a local high school drove away with after spending the morning behind the wheel playing a virtual texting while driving game.
The nationwide problem of texting and driving had gotten so bad that Maryland passed a law forbidding it. An insurance agent wants to make that point to teenagers.
When a high school principal requests it, nurses from Shock Trauma talk to students about the consequences of poor choices made while driving.
Texting while driving is claiming more lives. One study says 5,000 people are killed every year. Now a Maryland entrepreneur has invented new technology that could save lives.
