NBC News has cited Chetan Sharma’s US Mobile Data Market Update, which claims that text messaging amongst users has dropped from 696 texts in the second quarter of 2012 to 678 in the third quarter. Despite this, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released a statistic showing that cellular phone-related deaths, which include auto accidents associated with texting, still continue to rise. The NHTSA’s numbers seem to suggest that Sharma’s statistic is incorrect. Despite this, auto accident attorney Richard Console, Jr. urges drivers to take caution and not text while driving.
