Q: How can I avoid a distracted driving accident?

A: Several studies have shown that texting or using electronic devices, also known as distracted driving, could actually be more dangerous than drunk driving. Distracted drivers showed slower response times and more erratic patterns than drunk drivers, yet cell phone use and texting while driving currently remains legal in the state of Florida.

So what can YOU do to avoid a West Palm Beach distracted driving accident?

  • Turn off your cell phone so that you are not tempted to use it during drive time.
  • Get directions for your route ahead of time. If they are printed, read them several times before setting off.
  • Plug in and adjust your hands-free device before the car is in motion.
  • Secure children and pets in proper restraints, making sure all mirrors are visible.
  • Report distracted driving behaviors the same as you would any other reckless driving offense.

While several pieces of legislation have been drafted to combat distracted driving, none have made it on the books as of 2010. It is up to all drivers to reduce the amount of distractions in their own vehicles—and therefore reduce the amount of distracted drivers on the road.

If a driver on a cell phone caused injury to someone you love, get advice from an experienced Port St Lucie car crash attorney. Call Fetterman & Associates today at 561-845-2510.
