Some counties in Iowa are considering restrictions and possible bans on texting while driving. Such bans and restrictions have been passed in some states across the country.
These provisions have become more commonplace because of studies indicating that texting while driving leads to a significant number of accidents. The results of these studies are not surprising.
Because people are more focused on their cell phones than on the road when texting while driving, they are more likely to be involved in car accidents. To reduce this risk, governments believe passing and enforcing penalties will decrease the use of cell phones while driving.
