Motor vehicle crashes can happen for a broad range of reasons. Sometimes, bad weather makes it harder for people to control their vehicles properly. Other times, a mistake by one driver can end up having consequences for many other people on the road. Sadly, it has become increasingly common for people to make choices that leave others in danger on the road.
One such choice is the decision to drive distracted, particularly when someone engages with a mobile phone. Our culture has become obsessed with constant contact and the need for instant responses. Even those who may not text with family or loved ones on the road may feel compelled to respond to a boss or client. All too often, these people overlook the legal and practical risk that they are taking.
