A report by a nonprofit road safety association released on August 26 revealed that a large number of teens consider the use of portable electronics behind wheels a threat to their safety.
In its report, Distracted & Dangerous: Helping States Keep Teens Focused on the Road, the Governors Highway Safety Association discovered that 87.4% of teens aged 16 to 18 say mobile texting or emailing while driving is dangerous. However, the report also revealed that as young, inexperienced drivers gain more driving skills, their attitudes towards using gadgets behind the wheel begin to change.
The state of Georgia forbids texting while driving in all its forms: instant messaging, emailing, and text messaging. If you believe the car accident you had been involved in was caused by a texting driver, a lawyer at Ausband & Dumont might be able to help you seek financial compensation you need.
