There have been many studies done in today’s world seeing if texting and driving is dangerous and how dangerous it is. Well to make a long story short, texting and driving is twice as dangerous as driving while under the influence of alcohol. Statistically young drivers over 60% of drivers between 16 and 19 text and drive and of that 60% almost 20% admit to doing it regularly. Ultimately this is a dangerous occurrence in today’s society and needs to be more closely monitored. Of the 50 states in the United States only 29 states have laws restricting the use of cellular devices while operating a vehicle. Maine is one of the 29 states in the United States that has laws against distracted driving with a cellular device. More specifically Maine has laws against young driver’s usage of cellular devices while driving. The law says that any driver under the age of 18 cannot use their cellular device while driving their car.
