In 2007, Washington became just the first state to ban texting while driving. Less than ten years later, 45 additional states and the District of Columbia banned the practice as well, and many public awareness campaigns have attempted to curb texting and driving. Despite those efforts, texting while driving is still commonplace. In a 2015 Erie Insurance survey, one-third of drivers admitted to texting while driving. At any given daylight moment in the U.S., an estimated 660,000 people are manipulating electronic devices or using cell phones while driving.
