Distracted driving is one of the leading factors of motor vehicle accidents in the United States. Because of the seriousness of distracted driving, texting while driving has been illegal in Michigan since 2010. Yet, motorists continue to put others at risk on a daily basis when they fail to pay attention to the road.
