Most people, when they answer a text with an equally brief message when driving, do not think that they are doing anything wrong. Nor do most drivers who eat a burger while behind the wheel, or who play with the radio dial when driving along the expressway. More often than not, these activities go unnoticed by others, and the driver makes it safely to his or her destination. Every once in a while, however, such distractions lead to accidents, in which cases the drivers’ actions do not go unnoticed, and several people do not make it safely to their destinations.
Distracted driving is becoming an all-too-common phenomenon. According to the CDC, more than nine people are killed and approximately 1,000 more injured on a daily basis because of distracted driving. At Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., our LaSalle distracted driving lawyers combat distracted driving in the best way we know how – by pursuing a distracted driving accident claim on behalf of injured parties.
Distracted driving takes many forms, and more often than not, most people are not even aware that they are guilty of driving distracted. That is partially what makes distracted driving so dangerous. By informing Illinois drivers of what does and does not constitute distracted driving, we hope to reduce the number of distracted driving accidents and make Illinois roads just a little bit safer. Some activities that are considered distracting while driving include but are not limited to the following:
While some of these activities may seem like obvious no-no’s to you, you would be surprised by just how many drivers engage in such activities. In fact, you yourself may be guilty of a few of these. While you are not in trouble for being human, you and others like you need to keep in mind the consequences that seemingly innocent actions can have.
