Shortly after it gained widespread popularity, mobile phone text messaging emerged as one of the leading causes of traffic accidents in the United States. As demonstrated by this clip from The Today Show, the consequences of what many drivers believe to be harmless text messaging have had a painful toll on the lives of tens of thousands of Americans.
By focusing on a few specific examples of how the lives of many Americans have been lost and the lives of others forever changed as the result of drivers’ decisions to take their eyes off the road to type or read a text message, this news clip is something that many viewers can connect with and everyone should watch.
Texting while driving is an especially large problem among younger drivers.
