Whether talking or texting, too many San Diego drivers continue to be too
distracted to be safe drivers. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
Secretary, Ray LaHood, recently spoke about how people need to change
their mindset when it comes to using cell phones while driving. "I
am willing to bet that a majority of you have used this while driving,"
LaHood said, holding up a cell phone.
At least 1.6 million traffic crashes a year in the United States involve
drivers talking or texting on their cell phones. These numbers need to
go down. In California, it is illegal to use a hand held cell phone while
driving. It is illegal to text while driving. Yet people continue to do
it and as a result, people continue to be hurt and even killed in accidents
caused by distracted drivers.
If you, or someone you know, has been injured by a distracted driver please
call me or set up a
free consultation to discuss your rights.
