By now, we’ve all heard about the dangers of distracted driving.

Texting while driving is still one of the most common forms of distracted driving, with about one-third of drivers admitting to tapping away behind the wheel. (Another three-quarters of drivers say they’ve seen others do it.)

That’s because three Congressmen recently introduced legislation that would spur more states to ban all phone use behind the wheel.
