Too Many Distractions

There's no doubt that our modern, inter-connected society has a number of strengths. Certainly the ability to make instant contact with loved ones, to arrange or change plans, is a boon to many busy families.

However, there's also no doubt that these distractions present some serious dangers to unwary drivers. Of course, distracted driving is nothing new- there have been low tech distractions since the moment a person first jumped behind the wheel of a car.

Examples of distractions in a vehicle include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Phone calls
  • Music
  • Other passengers
  • Reading
  • Applying make-up, shaving or any other personal hygiene routine
  • Interesting sights or scenery along the road

The important thing to understand is that causing an accident while distracted is a serious liability issue. A distracted driver will have a hard case to make when it comes time to allocating liability.
