DISTRACTED DRIVING CAUSES ACCIDENTS IN ARIZONA, BUT CELL PHONES NOT ALWAYS TO BLAME

Posted by Jay L. Ciulla | Jul 15, 2014 | 1 Comment

Distraction.Gov claims that at any given daylight moment across America, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving, a number that has held steady since 2010.  Cell phone and texting while driving as causation for motor vehicle accidents has been well-documented; however, they are not the only distractions from the primary task of driving.  Other distractions include:

  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Smoking
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player or MP3 player

Distracted driving is a hazard on America's roadways. In 2012 alone, 3,328 were killed in distracted driving crashes. Almost every day, I see car crashes caused by distracted driving in my Phoenix, Arizona personal injury law practice.
