Use of cell phone and text messaging spells disaster for drivers By SEO Admin on April 18, 2008

Hi-tech devices such as cell phones and text messaging capable telephones are everywhere - including cars, trucks and vans traveling throughout Brevard County. Unfortunately, Brevard drivers with one hand on the steering wheel and another one on their mobile telephone is a common sight. With hi-tech cell phones it is now possible to talk, text-message, take photographs, check a G.P.S. system and adjust a satellite radio/MP3 player. While the no generation has a corner on driving cars and trucks while distracted, the appeal of hi-tech devices to the youthful Brevard County driver has added to the risk typically associated with young drivers. According to a recent article published in Trial Magazine (February 2008) one researcher found that a driver using a cell phone was four times as likely to get into an accident as someone who was not; a driver text-messaging was six times as likely to get into an accident. From mothers traveling along US Hwy. 1 in Cocoa to tractor trailer operators barreling down Interstate 95, such technology, while helpful, may prove deadly.
