How distracted driving affects those on the roads

The popularity of smartphones can be seen throughout the United States. If you are sitting in a bus or at a café, look around and notice the dozens of people with their eyes fixated on their phones and tablets. While this technology is undoubtedly embraced by many Americans, it has also led to a substantial increase in accidents on the roads.

How common is secondary enforcement for texting bans?

Florida is among the 46 states that prohibit all drivers from texting while driving. However, Florida’s ban is not a primary enforcement ban, but rather a secondary enforcement ban. What does this mean? It means that a citation for texting while driving generally can only be given when a violation of a different traffic law was also present. Primary enforcement, on the other hand, allows such citations to be issued independently.

Drowsy driving accidents increasing in Florida

A driver being sleepy can have pretty big consequences for others out on the roads. Lives can be lost or forever altered by auto crashes coming out of a driver not being awake enough at the wheel. Given this, high-stakes compensation issues can come up in connection to these types of accidents. Following a drowsy driving crash here in Florida, victims or families affected may want to go to an attorney skilled in personal injury litigation to discuss what such issues are present and to get guidance on navigating these issues.
