On September 21, 2010, the second annual government-sponsored national distracted driving summit was held in Washington, D.C. Participants in this summit learned about the pervasive problem of cell phone use by drivers who become distracted and sometimes get into accidents. The younger generation in particular is reliant upon cell phones for communication with everyone, all the time. Those who have recently obtained driver's licenses are susceptible to hazards of distracted driving in connection with the use of cell phones for texting or conversing through use of a handheld device while operating a motor vehicle.
California prohibits texting and the use of handheld devices by all drivers. Drivers under the age of 18 and bus drivers are not allowed to use cell phones at all while driving.
Was the other driver in your car accident using a cell phone and/or texting while driving at the time of the crash that injured you? A thorough investigation, including a review of cell phone records, may demonstrate that driver distractions could have played a role in the accident. This piece of evidence may strengthen arguments by your Chico distracted driving accidents attorney that the other driver's negligence was a cause — or the main cause — of your injuries and losses.
