WAS YOUR CAR ACCIDENT CAUSED BY A DRIVER USING A CELL PHONE?

Posted by Ben Sessions | Feb 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

Was your car accident caused by a driver using a cell phone? Most of us recognize the dangers associated with attempting to drive a car while being distracted by anything; however, cell phones, in particular, pose an incredible risk to others on the roadway. Georgia law recognizes and, in fact, criminalizes the driving while distracted by cell phones:

A driver shall exercise due care in operating a motor vehicle on the highways of this state and shall not engage in any actions which shall distract such driver from the safe operation of such vehicle, provided that, except as prohibited by Code Sections 40-6-241.1 and 40-6-241.2, the proper use of a radio, citizens band radio, mobile telephone, or amateur or ham radio shall not be a violation of this Code section.

Ga. Code Ann. § 40-6-241.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the National Safety Council have undertaken a significant amount of research on the dangers of distracted driving. Below is a graphical representation of the impact of cell phone usage on a person's brain. The impact on a driver's ability to operate a car safely while attempting to simultaneously use a cell phone is significantly impaired by the use of the cell phone:
