Watch our interview with Michael Carr as he discusses distracted driving with Good Day Tulsa.
What are the most common things people get distracted within the car?
The most common is a cell phone and many cars today have come equipped with hands-free device technology to help combat this distraction. However recent studies have shown that even if you are using hands-free in the car, if you are speaking with someone it lessens your ability to pay attention to the road.
Who is most at risk to be driving while distracted?
Teenage drivers are the most at-risk drivers to be distracted drivers. For teenagers ages 15-20, motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death. Teenagers don’t typically drive by themselves; they have other teenagers in the car and they don’t typically stay quiet.
What happens if you are hit by someone that is clearly driving while distracted?
If you are involved in a collision and the other person was distracted or on the phone, you can receive compensation for medical bills, time off work, and your pain and suffering. Call Carr and Carr Attorneys today to speak with an attorney today.
