New Data Suggest Smartphones Make Roads More Dangerous

Washington Post analysis piece reports new data “collected by Cambridge Mobile Telematics from hundreds of thousands of drivers using its app” found that “more than half of all trips that ended in a crash also included some form of distraction from a mobile phone,” while nearly a quarter of crashes saw the driver “using a phone within a minute before the crash occurred…perhaps even at the moment of the crash.” The article notes that the findings “appear to strengthen the view that smartphones have made” US roads more dangerous, and “also suggest that none of the laws that have been enacted so far have made a dent in the problem.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
