April represents National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

This month represents National Distracted Driving Awareness Month and officials across the country are taking this time to remind people of the dangers that distracted driving can cause.

Distractions while driving are characterized by any task that takes away from the primary task at hand. If a driver is distracted while behind the wheel, any driver, pedestrian, bicyclist or car passenger are in danger. A few of these distractions include talking on a cell phone, eating, drinking, texting, adjusting the stereo and reading a map.

In many states it it illegal to text while driving because this task is considered to be one of the most dangerous distracted driving tasks. Texting not only uses visual senses, but also manual and cognitive. All of these senses are needed while driving and a person’s full attention is not given to the road when trying to text and drive.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident due to a negligent driver, you need representation on your side that may be able to help you receive the representation that you deserve.
