Cellphones have undeniably changed American culture. While at one time, everyone was tied to a landline if they wanted to make a call, cellphones have now become the dominant form of communication. Not only that, but people can do even more on their cellphones these days, like send text messages and emails and look at the Internet. Unfortunately, this technological revolution has led to a dangerous side effect: drivers throughout the country are more distracted than ever.
This past Labor Day weekend was a good example of a time when family and friends get together to spend time together, catch up with each other and, generally, just have a good time. For many, including thousands of Texas residents, the good times includes drinking alcohol. While drinking alcohol doesn't always lead to problems, it certainly can when an intoxicated person gets behind the wheel of a vehicle.
