Talking on a cell phone while driving can be a major distraction. There are thousands of accidents each year caused by negligent and distracted drivers who choose to talk on the phone or text behind the wheel.
Texting while driving is said to be as dangerous as drunk driving. Thirty states have banned texting while driving completely and at this rate most states are sure to follow.
Cell phone use in motor vehicles can make employers legally responsible for accidents. If a driver is conducting business on a cell phone while driving, an employer may be held accountable to pay damages to an accident victim.
