Were You Hit By A Driver Who Was Using A Cellphone?
As cellphones become more and more a part of everyone’s life, many people make the mistake of believing that talking on or using a cellphone to text or scan the Internet while driving is a harmless activity. It is not. Numerous studies show that the use of a cellphone while driving creates very similar risks to those posed by drunk drivers. Texting and driving can cause rear-end collisions and a wide range of other types of accidents.
Distracted drivers are less safe than drivers who are not using cellphones in a wide range of key performance areas, including:
- Failing to notice essential traffic signals (stoplights, stop signs, activated brake lights)
- Following too closely to other cars
- Braking more slowly and less forcefully
