The Dangers of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving has always been a risk factor for auto accidents. According to the most recently published statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving has caused thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of injuries.
Distracted driving comes in many forms. Drivers may fiddle with radio dials, light cigarettes, look at maps, become distracted by unusual things they see out of the car windows, or focus their attention on interacting with passengers.
Perhaps the most dangerous form of distraction, however, is an electronic distraction – cellphones/smartphones with mobile devices such as GPS devices, on-board computer systems, and tablets have been identified as increasingly dangerous distracters.
No one deserves to become injured or lose a loved one due to distracted driving. At Anesi Ozmon, our dedicated attorneys are ready to help you.
Texting While Driving Is Illegal in Illinois
Texting while driving or the use of hand-held cellphones while driving is prohibited by law in Illinois. Only hands-free cellphones are allowed, and even these cannot be used in construction zones.
Cellphone records help accident reconstruction experts determine whether a driver was distracted at the time of a crash – not only for the criminal case but also for the personal injury case.
