You can hold a distracted driver liable for a car accident

Distracted driving is quickly emerging as a major problem on Virginia roads. With more and more Virginians owning smart phones over the last few years, the increase of texting and driving is substantial and an ongoing problem. While texting and driving, a driver can quickly lose focus and cause a car accident. It is important for a driver to maintain their focus while on the roads. The driver should particularly exercise caution when approaching a pedestrian or bicyclist. If a driver has a pet or a child in the car, the animal or child should be safely secured.

Research shows distracted driving leads to six of 10 teen crashes

A new study confirms that six out of 10 teen crashes occur due to distracted driving. The figure is higher than previously estimated. According to the earlier estimates, only 14 percent of teen crashes occurred due to distraction during driving.

Distracted drivers cause thousands of accidents each year

Distracted driving is a major problem on Virginia roads and across the United States. Although many people may think teen drivers are to blame, older drivers can also be guilty of distracted driving.
