In the past five years, texting while driving has been a rising cause of car wrecks. When drivers text, they impair their ability to drive safely, understand traffic conditions, and react appropriately.
Many states have recognized the danger of texting while driving. As a result, they have passed laws to either prohibit or restrict the use of cell phones or similar devices while operating a vehicle.
In Wisconsin, there are very few laws regulating cell phone use while driving. However, many key state lawmakers are proposing such rules, and it is likely that a texting while driving law will be passed in the next year.
