Is Texting and Driving or Drunk Driving More Dangerous?

What is more dangerous? Texting and driving or drunk driving?

Texting and driving auto accidents in Tampa, Florida. Studies have shown that distracted driving (caused by drivers looking at their cell phones, radios, texting, emails, etc) is increasingly becoming more dangerous than a driver who is intoxicated or under the importance of drugs or alcohol.

The number of fatalities caused by distracted driving increased 28% between 2005 and 2008 alone. In 2012, 3,328 Americans died in crashes involving a distracted driver (mostly texting and driving), while 10,322 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes.  However, the number of non-fatal accidents cannot be calculated as most of at-fault parties do not admit to being on their cellular devices (ie, texting and driving) at the time of their accident.

Why? Because if you were texting and driving at 70 mph and not looking at the road, within the 3 seconds you looked at your phone you have traveled more than 308 feet!

Don’t believe me?
Here’s the math: 70 miles/hr = 70 miles/hr * 5280 ft/mile = 369600 ft/hr
369600 ft/hr / 3600 sec/hr = 102 2/3 ft/se

Now, ask yourself how many things change in 300 feet (a football field)?

Drunk Driving Accident Victims in Tampa Florida

Drunk Driving Accident Victims in Tampa Florida

Unlike most Tampa auto accident attorneys, when a victim of a DUI accident, or the family of a victim of drunk driving hires our Tampa firm to represent them in the civil aspect of the auto accident, we will go to the criminal hearings with our families and speak on their behalf to the Court, if necessary.  We have been assets to prosecutors in aiding a prosecution and obtain aid for our client’s families.  Our private investigators have discovered new evidence (like receipts from the bar) and talked to new witnesses not found by law enforcement.  We represent the victims, not the State, and demand justice for our victims.  

 

We pride ourselves in being different than other Tampa law firms when it comes to representing drunk driving accident victims.

 

If you have been injured by a drunk driver, or your family has been victimized by a drunk driver, call Tampa Injury Attorney Martin Hernandez at 813-229-5353 or read more at: InjuryLawyersOfTampa.com. See our gallery of the annual MADD walks.
