Drunk vs. Distracted Driving

There seems to be a stigma around drinking and driving. Society understands that it causes severe accidents and often looks down on those that drink and drive. Studies have produced results that their conductors hope will put a stigma on texting and driving as well.

Those that text while driving increase their chances of causing an accident by 23 times. Doctors have even found that texting is similar to having a .19 blood alcohol level, which is over the legal limit. Police are now starting to pull over people who are texting by analyzing their driving behavior and comparing it that of a drunk driver, such as uncontrollable swerving. It is evident that this type of reckless driving is in some ways very similar to drunk driving, both of which are at high risk of causing harm to oneself and others. If you wouldn’t drink and drive, then why text and drive?
