Orlando Distracted Driver Accident Attorney
Pursuing Justice on Your Behalf
Distracted driving is second only to drunk driving in what are the most dangerous driving conditions possible. Not only do distracted drivers put themselves at risk, they are risking the lives of everyone else on the road. Unfortunately, many people feel the small act of checking your email or grabbing something from the backseat isn’t a cause of danger--despite overwhelming evidence proving otherwise.
Legal Update: In May 2019, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill making texting while driving a primary offense in Florida. The new law took effect on July 1, 2019, and law enforcement will be able to cite and fine motorists beginning January 1, 2020.
Forms of Driver Distraction
Distracted driving can cause a variety of accidents, ranging from a minor fender bender to the wrongful death of innocent bystanders. Any activity which takes a driver’s attention away from the road should never occur, though these incidents occur more often than you may believe.
Examples of distracted driving include, but are not limited to:
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Talking to passengers in the car
- Eating or drinking
- Putting on makeup
- Tuning the radio or adjusting the music
- Reaching for an object
- Looking anywhere other than ahead
- Using a cell phone for other reasons, such as setting up navigation or checking email
