Texting while you're behind the wheel is illegal and dangerous. Every time you look away from the roads, you're leaving yourself open to getting into an accident. When you look away, you may not see a vehicle stop ahead of you, cross the center lane or lose control of your vehicle after striking an object in the road.
Did you know that whenever you hear that little ping, jingle or buzz indicating a text message, your brain releases a hit of dopamine? If not, now you know why it's so hard for people to avoid looking at their phones while they're driving. Dopamine makes us feel good. So whenever we think we have a text message, we feel compelled to look at our phones, despite the fact we know it's dangerous.
