Why is “texting” on mobile phones such a hazardous activity while driving in Los Angeles?

In recent years, advancements in mobile technology have been growing at an exponential rate. Mobile texting; sending mms messages; mobile web surfing; mobile chatting; and a plethora of other mobile based applications are now widely used across Los Angeles county. Because of the portable nature of mobile phones, individuals using their mobile phones while driving has increased at an alarming rate. In fact, due to the dramatic rise in car accidents because of texting, in 2008 California passed a law banning text messaging while driving.

Studies have indicated that people who text while driving have delayed reaction times and do not pay enough attention to the road. It has been reported that distraction from cell phones while driving leads to the same delayed reaction times as a driver with an alcohol blood concentration level of 0.08. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reported that drivers who use their cell phones while driving are four times more likely to get in to a car accident that causes an injury.
