What can be Classified as Distracted Driving?
Contrary to what many believe, distracted driving is considered more than
just talking on your cell phone. In fact, many activities could be classified
as distracted driving. Was your accident caused by one of these actions?
If so, our experienced the Montgomery distracted driving accident attorney
can help you seek compensation on the basis that your accident was caused
by distracted driving.
Some examples of distracted driving include:
- Talking on the phone
- Applying make-up
- Changing the radio station
- Using a navigation device
- Talking to other passengers
- Eating or drinking
Currently, Pennsylvania law prohibits the use of any wireless communication
device to send, read, or write text correspondence while they are driving.
This includes devices other than cellular phones such as computers, digital
assistants, and tablets. Pennsylvania issues a $50 fine for any driver
convicted of texting while driving.
