The Consequences of Distracted Driving
There is no denying that a distracted driver’s attention is divided. While people love to attempt to multi-task, the road is a place where one must be fully aware of all of the surrounding areas. Distractions can hinder coordination, vision, and take a driver’s hands away from the wheel. A moment is all it takes to cause a serious accident.
Here are the most common driver distractions:
- Changing the radio station
- Using a GPS device
- Talking or texting on a phone
- Reaching for objects inside the vehicle
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Putting on makeup
- Talking to passengers
Laws have been passed in some states making cell phone use illegal while driving. Florida does not criminalize using a handheld device, however, texting is considered illegal for all drivers. If a distracted driver is found guilty of violating this law, this can be an important piece of your claim.
