Is It Illegal to Text and Drive in Texas?

In Texas, it absolutely is illegal to text and drive. We passed a law to prevent that. It is so dangerous —study after study after study indicates that talking on the phone is the same as being drunk while driving. It's not only illegal, it's absolutely negligent to be doing it. And it seems like, especially in the last several years, almost every car wreck case that we're involved in involves texting or some type of use of the phone. And yes, the technology has gotten a lot better to where now we can trap that information. We routinely download the information from the cell phone company to find out if you were texting or driving. Is it illegal? Yes. You might get a ticket, but that's just a scratch on the surface compared to if you seriously hurt someone or even kill someone as a result of texting and driving.

If you've been involved in a car wreck and are seriously injured, you absolutely want your attorney to search those records and take a look at them. We routinely do it at Parker Law Firm. And if you have any questions, give us a call. I'll be happy to try to answer them for you.
