Texting & Driving Accident Attorney

Texting & Driving Accident Lawyers in Central Pennsylvania

Texting and Driving has become a rising epidemic throughout the United States. In 2015 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 were injured in accidents involving distracted drivers.

One of the leading causes of distracted driving accidents is cell phone use – an estimated 660,000 drivers use their cell phones while driving each day. When you send or read a text while driving and take your eyes off the road even for just 5 seconds – at 55mph that is the same as driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed!

Those who choose to text while driving are 23 times more likely to be involved in a car crash – typically happening 3 seconds after a driver becomes distracted.

In Pennsylvania, the texting-while-driving ban was put in place prohibiting, “any driver from using an Interactive Wireless Communication Device (IWCD) to send, read or write a text-based communication while his or her vehicle is in motion.”

The penalty associated with this ban includes a $50 fine, court fees, and other costs associated. No points are added as a penalty, and it is not recorded on the driver’s record – unless they are a commercial driver.
