Texting is bad because of the deaths that occur with texting and driving. More than 6,000 deaths and half a million injuries occur when someone is distracted. The main source of the distraction comes from texting with their cell phone. Also texting hurts communication 90% of communication is non spoken instead it is body language and texting this away.
