Texting While Driving: 23 Times More Likely to Cause an Accident

A hard to believe, but apparently true, truck accident statistic was reported today in a new study reported in the New York Times. Video cameras were placed in trucks found that the truck accident rate was 23 times greater when there was texting and driving than not.
