TEXTING AND DRIVING

1452003_556749294408389_198625424_n.jpgA Law Unobserved 

It has been compared to driving while drunk, and continues to cause thousands of deaths nationwide. However, many people still text and drive regardless of unforeseen consequences.

In a recent survey sponsored by AT&T, 98 percent of those surveyed acknowledged the danger of texting while driving, yet three-quarters of them admitted to texting while driving.Despite evidence to the contrary, the belief continues that juggling several tasks at once is possible while driving.

Some of the reasons noted for texting and driving were to stay in touch with friends/family/work, habit, not wanting to miss opportunities, wanting to respond in a timely manner,or even to curb an addiction.

For the full article, you can read it here.

The survey preceded an app from AT&T that silences text messages while driving and activates when the user is moving faster than 15mph.Similar apps are expected to follow.

More important than an app though, is a clearly defined mindset before the situation presents itself. Decide now to resist the urge to text and drive. Put your phone in a place where you won't be distracted by it when driving, and encourage those you drive with to do the same. If you are driving as a passenger, offer to type the text for them or find the song they are looking for. Chances are, they will thank you in the end.

If you have been injured by someone else's negligence due to texting or another factor, please call us for a free consultation at 801-264-6677 or online. Time is a key factor, so act now with one of our Utah Personal Injury Lawyers.
