The texting and driving law that was put into effect is there for a very good reason, accidents will happen if doing both.

The 2014 edition of Injury facts was recently released by The National Safety Council, it pretty much covers safety stats and trends across our lovely country.

The bottom line is that the amount of car accidents tied to cell phone use is at 26%.

Keep in mind that cell phone use, not necessarily texting and driving, only 5% of the accidents are due to texting and driving according to the report.

Whats going to happen is that if safety advocates get their way, there will a total ban on driving and cell phone use of any kind.

The report also states that even using your headset doesn't reduce the distraction while driving.
