it's called DWT, driving while texting and recent studies show that plenty of us do it but that doesn't make it safe and now some states are fighting for a ban against it.
In a matter of seconds Patrick Sims life changed because of texting behind the wheel. The teen was planning on quickly sending a text, he says he looked down for 2 seconds but when he looked back up he was inches from a cyclist in the bike lane.
It was a collision that killed a 63 year old grandfather.
Now as part of Patrick's probation he has to talk to other teens about the accident and is no longer allowed to text ever again.
