Navigating the difficult times after a car accident

For many people, driving is a form of relaxation. The open road can provide one with a sense of freedom and escape from some of the stressors in their life. However, that same enjoyable activity can turn tragic in the event of a sever car accident. Worse, the cause of the accident may be completely out of a driver's hands.

Nevada car accidents attributed to distracted driving

Distracted driving has been a hot topic recently in Nevada and national news media. Everyone is talking about how dangerous it is to be texting and driving. This is because using a cell phone while behind the wheel can lead to inattentive and dangerous driving. Such inattention has been linked to negligent driving resulting in serious injuries to themselves or others.

Nevada police cracking down on distracted driving

Portable digital devices are great for keeping in touch with people, taking photos or just playing a game while stuck in a long line. In the past few years, the devices have become such a big part of many people's daily routines that some Nevada residents forget that there are certain situations in which they should definitely not look at their phones. Perhaps the most important time to put the phone away is when one is behind the wheel.

Nevada Highway Patrol: Drivers still using phones behind wheel

Nevada drivers probably know that they're not supposed to have their phones in their hands while they are driving. After all, the practice is prohibited under state law, and drivers can be fined if police officers catch them doing it. Still, studies show that the use of cell phones while driving continues to increase. The Nevada Highway Patrol has said that drivers using cell phones is so pervasive that distracted driving will soon eclipse intoxicated driving as the top cause of traffic fatalities.
