The Texas Department of Transportation has joined forces with AT&T in an effort to combat multitasking while behind the wheel as part of National Distracted Driving Month.

For the past three years, almost one in every five vehicular crashes in Texas has been caused by distracted driving.

"It's extremely concerning that drivers still choose to give their attention to things other than the road when they're behind the wheel," said Executive Director James Bass in a TxDOT press release. "As a society, we're more connected than ever to our devices and easily tempted to multitask, but drivers need to understand all of these various distractions can lead to a tragic outcome."
