According to the National Transportation and Safety Board (â€śNSTBâ€ť), distracted driving is a problem that needs to be addressed in the United States and other nations.Â Distracted driving includes talking on the phone, surfing the Internet, and texting while operating a motor vehicle. One NSTB member called distracted driving the â€śnew DUI.â€ťÂ This member said society must elevate distracted driving to a taboo such as drinking and driving, a change that could take a generation or two.
Sometimes, when people are driving, they feel it will only take a second to answer a phone call, send a text message, or look up information on their mobile browser.Â While the amount of time spent on a cell phone may be short, the driver may become distracted at a crucial time.Â The car in front of him may slow down.Â A pedestrian may cross the street.Â A car may turn in front of his car.Â If a driver is not paying attention to the road when a similar situation arises, an accident is more likely to occur.Â If you are injured in a car wreck caused by a distracted driver, call the Memphis personal injury law firm Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (â€śNST Lawâ€ť) at 901-683-7000 or 1-800-LAW-4004.Â On certain Memphis streets, such as Poplar Avenue, Germantown Road, and Union Avenue, drivers need to be especially careful due to the high number of cars on the road.Â The Memphis auto accident attorneys at NST Law have over twenty years experience handling tragic car wreck cases that occur throughout Shelby County, and with knowledge of the latest Tennessee driving and insurance laws, you can trust that we have what it takes to fight for you.
