St. Louis Car Accident Lawyers Take on Distracted Drivers
There is absolutely no excuse for any driver, especially truck drivers to use a cell phone while driving. Texting on the cell phone while driving causes the driver to take their eyes and their attention away from the road which often times results in devastating traffic accidents. Recently, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTBS) has proposed a nationwide ban of cell phones and other portable electronics among drivers. This ban includes both hands-free and handheld devices.
The NTSB proposal is in response to a catastrophic crash that occurred near St. Louis in 2010 involving texting while driving that killed two young people and injured 38 additional people. Distracted driving is becoming as dangerous as drunk driving and it is the NTSB’s mission to enforce the ban throughout the country.
