You may be aware of the fact that texting and driving is dangerous, yet you cannot resist checking your messages or sending texts from behind the wheel of a moving motor vehicle. While you may be worried about getting caught texting while driving, you should be more concerned about causing a car crash.

If you are texting and driving and cause a serious car accident on I-80 or any other road in Iowa, you may be sued by the other driver. You may also be subject to a fine of up to $1,000 and have your license suspended. Not only can distracted driving accidents cause catastrophic physical injuries, but the financial consequences can be devastating. Many drivers who have caused accidents because they were texting and driving have been pushed into bankruptcy and have lost everything. Avoid this from happening to you and don’t text and drive.

At Hupy and Abraham, we urge drivers in Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, and all throughout Iowa and nationwide to put down their phones to save lives. Help us put an end to texting and driving and request our free bumper sticker “DNT TXT N DRV” by contacting us at 800.800.5678 or online at
