California could see tougher penalties for texting and driving

Data from the California Office of Traffic Safety implicates distracted drivers in four out every five traffic accidents. On a national basis, over 2,000 people are killed annually in car accidents involving distracted driving. Driver inattention can be anything from eating or fumbling with the radio to trying to attend to children while driving. However, most attention and legislation is focused on the use of electronic devices while driving.

Distracted driving is a scourge on the roads and highways of Northern California, and across the state, in general. The California Office of Traffic Safety reports that some form of distracted driving - whether texting, talking, putting on makeup, or anything else that takes a driver's eyes off the road - is a factor in four out of every five accidents in the state. Across the United States, distracted drivers kill thousands of motorists every year.
