As for West Virginia, it prohibits drivers under 18 years old to use a cell phone. Distracted driving killed 5,474 people 2009 nationwide and injuries thousands more every year. The main reason why drivers have accidents while texting is their reaction time decreases and they’re not paying close attention to the road.
