Distracted driving is any form of driving that's done without one's full attention. The most notorious form of distracted driving is texting. There are other forms of distracted driving, including eating, putting on makeup, adjusting the radio, and carrying on conversations with passengers, but texting while driving has received the most attention in recent years.
At 55 miles per hour, the act of reading or writing even a short text means the driver is not looking at the road for a distance equivalent to the length of a football field. Excluding some local cities that have passed distracted driving laws, there is no widespread ban in Texas.
As more people use mobile devices like tablets and smartphones to check email and send texts, more people will make poor decisions behind the wheel. Taking your eyes off the road—even for a split second—can result in a wreck that can ruin another person's life.
