Texting and driving is illegal

On their daily commute, many Reno drivers have been witness to illegal behavior. No, we aren't talking about speeding, tailgating or erratic driving. We are talking about illegal cell phone use, specifically texting and driving. The state of Nevada has strict laws about texting and driving.

There is a state-wide ban on hand-held cell phone use in Reno and all Nevada cities. This includes activities such as texting and driving. Texting and driving is dangerous because hands leave the steering wheel and eyes leave the road during texting.

For those who have been injured in a car accident where distracted driving is suspected, there may be a chance for compensation. Bodily injuries and property damages are reason enough reason to seek compensation due to negligent driving. However, many injured Reno residents also suffer additional financial burden such as lost wages due to serious injuries sustained in the crash. Whatever the reason, holding a negligent driver responsible after engaging in distracted driving behavior such as texting and driving can make all the difference for the injured and their families.

No one can turn back the hands of time, however, the injured can decide how to proceed after a car accident resulted in injuries. Texting and driving is absolutely not allowed while driving in Reno and is considered distracted driving behavior. If determined that texting and driving was a factor that caused a car accident, the negligent driver can be held responsible. At least Nevada has a strict no texting and driving law in place to help protect Reno drivers.
