These days, mobile phones have become a daily accessory for all of us. But you will be amazed to know that someone who texts while driving a car is twice as likely to be involved in an motor vehicle accident as someone who is drunk or else impaired at the .08 alcohol level (Standard DUI levels in most of American States).
