AAA Study Finds Voice Text Messaging Almost as Dangerous as Real Thing

Posted by Paul Levin | Jun 14, 2013 | 0 Comments

A study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports that using voice-based text messaging services, which are increasingly being introduced into new vehicles, is almost as dangerous as conventional texting and more distracting to drivers than simply making a phone call with a handheld mobile phone. This report comes as more and more states are beginning to focus on the dangers of texting while driving.

Connecticut law currently prohibits the use of manual texting features on mobile devices while operating a vehicle. However, as currently written, it appears to be the case that the law does allow the use of voice-operated texting services. As this study demonstrates, this is a potential hole in the law which might continue to allow dangerous driving behaviors to go unpunished.

If you've been injured in a car accident caused by a driver who was texting or engaging in any other irresponsible behavior, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.
