The following scenario is all too common. You are crawling along at low speeds in rush hour traffic and take a quick glance at the driver next to you. Instead of looking at the road, they are looking down at their phone. Maybe you have even snuck a peek at your phone while driving. The fact is that drivers from all walks of life are using their mobile devices behind the wheel. While dangerous at any speed, distractions at higher speeds are more likely to cause catastrophic accidents.
Every year many car accidents occur in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the rest of the county, as a result of distracted driving. Nowadays, one of the major reasons for such distractions is mobile phones, which most people have with them all the time. Receiving frequent texting and social media messages on mobile phones means that such people are often unable to put devices away when they are supposed to be concentrating on driving.
