(KMOV) -- A new study by Texas A&M researchers discovered texting and driving impedes response time in half.

The researchers tested a control group of non-texters and a second group of texters.

Each group drove a car with a researcher holding a response light. They were asked to brake when the light was activated.

The control group of non-texters responded to the light and hit the break in two seconds.The texting group took more than four seconds.
