Texting Truck Drivers
Texting Truckers Are Breaking the Law — AND RISKING LIVES!
When truck drivers are not paying attention to the road, they are distracted. One of the primary causes of truck accidents is distracted driving. Truckers who send text messages on their cell phones may be putting your life at risk. Texting by truckers and bus drivers is not only dangerous, it's illegal.
The federal government in January 2010 made texting by truckers and bus drivers against the law. The law was created as part of an effort to reduce the threat of distracted drivers.
While it's not clear how many truck accidents, car wrecks and motorcycle accidents have occurred as a result of truckers who send text message behind the wheel, the high risk of accidents is very real.
