High Asset Divorces: Colorado’s Marital Property Laws and Implications
September 12, 2023READ THE POST
Approximately 1.3 million car accidents occur each year in the United States that are caused by texting and driving. The increased reliance on cell phones or mobile devices for navigation and communication is, unfortunately causing a huge increase in auto accidents. These demographics have substantially increased among younger drivers. Texting while driving is a dangerous act that leads to not just a ticket but there’s potential that you could cause a serious accident. Due to the extended amount of time during which the driver is distracted from the road when texting or just simply looking down at their phone screen, the probability of causing an accident increases exponentially. Typically, it takes a minimum of five seconds to look down, focus, and read a text message, and then to look back up to refocus on the road. Imagine what could happen in those 5 seconds when the driver is not focusing on the road. Here, I’ll tell you: when traveling at 40 miles per hour on Colorado Springs city roads, a 5-second time span can allow a vehicle to travel the length of an entire football field without looking up. We all know how long a football field is, so that’s terrifying! The risk of causing a car accident during this time increases by 23 times in comparison to someone who is diligently focusing on where they are going. When you are texting and driving, you are putting not only yourself but others on the road in danger.
