Laws against texting while driving reduced emergency room visits
from Texas A&M Today
New evidence from Texas A&M School of Public Health indicates that texting-while-driving laws may avert the need for emergency treatment following a motor vehicle crash. Researchers found that states with a primary texting ban on all drivers on average saw an 8 percent reduction in emergency department visits resulting from a motor vehicle crash. Approximately 39 million Americans visit emergency departments every year due to all types of injuries, but many of them motor vehicle crashes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
