Drunk driving or driving while texting, which is more dangerous?
Many people are starting to claim that driving while texting is more dangerous than drunk driving. In most cases, however, it is a matter of circumstance.
Nevertheless, both are dangerous and impair drivers' ability to make judgments while driving. Drunk driving impairs drivers by slowing down their motor skills and cognitive recognition. Without these abilities, drivers are unable to react properly to traffic.
Drivers who text, on the other hand, pose a danger to other drivers and themselves because they cannot pay attention to the road properly. By texting on their cell phone, these drivers take their eyes off the phone for significant periods of time.
