Texting While Driving Causes Accidents

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.
