In today’s society, we are glued to our smartphones, relying on them to communicate with others, stay updated on current events, and conduct our daily activities. However, many people can’t keep their eyes and hands away from them when they drive.

With over 34 years of experience, he understands what it takes to maximize his client’s recoveries and can help you navigate the complexities of the legal system.

Dangers of Texting While Driving

Texting and driving is considered one of the most hazardous distracted driving behaviors. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, cellphones are involved in approximately 1.6 million motor vehicle collisions annually, resulting in 6,000 fatalities and half a million injuries.

The three main forms of distraction include the following:

  • Visual – Taking your eyes away from the road
  • Cognitive – Taking your mind away from the primary task of operating a vehicle
  • Manual – Hands are off the steering wheel

Texting while driving involves all of these three factors. Distracted driving can be just as dangerous as intoxicated driving.

North Carolina Texting Laws

In North Carolina, drivers are prohibited from texting while operating a motor vehicle. Teen drivers and drivers of commercial vehicles such as truck drivers and school bus drivers are strictly prohibited from using their cell phone while driving - this includes calling, texting, reading a text, browsing the internet, video chatting, etc.
