Now more than ever, drivers have numerous gadgets to occupy their thoughts while driving. Most cars have GPS systems, DVD players, and MP3 hookups. To top it off, most drivers use PDA or cell phones while handling their car. Given the increase in portable technology, drivers need to be more cautious when driving. However, if you are injured in a car accident, it is important for your lawyer to determine if the other driver may have been distracted while operating his vehicle. Was the other driver making a phone call or sending a text message just seconds before the accident occurred? Some wireless providers place there own recommendations for appropriate wireless usage on their websites. See AT&T’s “Be Sensible” campaign and Verizon Wireless. While driving safely should be each drivers main focus, sadly, too often it isn’t.
