Distracted drivers are a deadly hazard. Distracted drivers are a double hazard – they are not concentrating on their own driving, and are also unable to monitor other drivers to avoid danger. Increases in distracted driving accidents are a disturbing trend — no doubt caused by cellphones, iPods, texting and the many technological features now offered in cars.

Being distracted is no excuse for causing a car accident. Motor vehicles are deadly when not operated properly. All drivers have a responsibility to pay attention when operating a motor vehicle to avoid what can be catastrophic consequences for other drivers.

- Dialing phone numbers
