We’ve all seen the headlines – U.S. roads are getting more dangerous because of distracted drivers.
That’s why more and more states are adding hands-free driving regulations to make the roads safer for everyone. In fact, 14 states now ban the use of hand-held cellphones while driving and 47 states outlaw texting behind the wheel.
Text messages are among the most common smartphone distractions. The average one takes your eyes off the road long enough to travel the entire length of a football field when driving 55 miles per hour, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
