DISTRACTED DRIVING WRECKS
Many distractions exist while driving, but cell phones are a top distraction because so many drivers use them for long periods of time each day. Almost everyone has seen a driver distracted by a cell phone.
New technology in vehicles is causing us to become more distracted behind the wheel than ever before. According to the National Safety Council Fifty-three percent of drivers believe if manufacturers put "infotainment" dashboards and hands-free technology in vehicles, they must be safe. And, with some state laws focusing on handheld bans, many drivers honestly believe they are making the safe choice by using a hands-free device. But in fact, these technologies, while fun can be very dangerous.
Texting while driving is unlawful throughout the entire state on public streets and highways. The attorneys at Tatum & Atkinson, PLLC understand distracted driving and the effects it has on our clients.
