Wisconsin laws regarding texting and driving

In the state of Wisconsin, it is illegal to text on your phone while operating a motor vehicle. This law will help prevent numerous car accidents, and save lives.

The month of April is being regarded as the National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Texting while driving is a distraction that can contribute to fatal car crashes at an extremely high rate. In 2009, distracted driving was connected to 5,474 fatalities and 448,000 injuries in the United States.

An individual who is attempting to text on a cellphone and drive at the same time is 23 times more likely to be involved in a car accident. The rate at which text messages are being sent and received in America is increasing at an alarming rate, and it is important for the facts regarding the issue to be publicly known.
