Distracted DrivingMany people die each day because of distracted driving. We have almost 1,200 people killed or injured every day because of distracted driving.Tweleve states have banned the use of hand held phones while driving. We are beginning to see criminal prosecutions of those who text and kill and it happens every day. Around 11% of drivers involved in a fatal crash were on the phone or texting. There are survivor groups for families who have lost a loved one due to a distracted-driving fatality.
The distracted driving law is difficult for the officers on the road to enforce. They have to see the driver in the act of using their handheld device. But when you drive at night how many times do you see people look in their law at a glowing light? You know what they are doing and you know they are not looking at the road.
