The dangers of texting while driving and why Missouri's ban isn't enough

While most other states have banned texting while driving for all drivers, Missouri lags behind with a ban solely for drivers under 21. Missouri's attempt to expand that to all drivers in 2015 fell short. This year, the House and Senate have heard testimony on another bill that would ban all drivers from texting while driving in all but emergency situations. If the bill passes, the law will likely go into effect in August.

Teen drivers and texting not a good mix

Most Kansas City residents are likely aware of issues texting while driving pose. While there are many ways in which someone behind the wheel of a car could be distracted, when cellphones became accessible to the masses, they provided another way in which driver's attention could be pulled from where it should be, the road. According to some experts, texting is possibly the worst type of distraction since it involves three different types of distractions: mental, visual and manual.

Texting while driving continues to be an issue in Missouri

There is no doubt about it, cellphones play a big role in today's society and their popularity shows no signs of ebbing anytime soon. Users not only communicate via verbal conversations, but more and more, texting as well. Activities involving cellphones can be considered distracted driving behaviors which often lead to car accidents.
