Distracted driving accidents are considered a dangerous problem in this country especially with the increase in use of mobile handheld devices. Due to advances in technology, we are able to connect with friends and family, find out the latest news and get directions to the nearest gas station, all with the touch of a few buttons.
These advances have also resulted in unwanted and unintentional dangerous consequences for drivers and others near the roads. Despite the new laws and measures to prevent and curb distracted driving accidents, they are still happening an excusable and disturbing amount of times. They can result in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, and multi-car accidents. They are completely avoidable and preventable and caused directly by the negligence of the driver.

Driving While Texting
There are more and more drivers every day using their hand held devices while operating a motor vehicle in Virginia and across the United States. Some are using their GPS systems to help with directions while others are answering emails or texting friends. Many drivers cannot ignore their mobile devices and their urges to respond to texts, emails or GPS prompts putting everyone else on the road in danger. Driving while texting is dangerous and reckless and can lead to serious motor vehicle accidents, injuries and even death.
State and Federal agencies are cracking down on people who are driving while texting and they are funding safety programs to educate people about the dangers of distracted driving. Despite the new measures, the behavior of driving while texting continues to be a big problem as smart phone use increases and drivers are able to access mobile applications and more social media sites.
Anytime a driver sends or receives a text, they are taking their eyes off the road and are more likely to have an accident. These driving while texting accidents are preventable and not forgivable.
