Texting while driving is an easily avoidable habit that could land you
a fine, prison time, or even cause serious car accidents! On Thursday,
Pennsylvania joins several other states across the nation to make it illegal
to text while driving a car in order to preserve road safety and reduce
Negligent drivers are one of the leading causes of traffic accidents and
countless avoidable tragedies in our nation. Negligence is found when
a person owes a duty to others, breaches that duty, and the breach of
that duty is the cause of injury or damage to others. Drivers owe a duty
to other travelers and pedestrians to drive responsibly and abide by traffic
regulations. The duty is breached by a careless driver when they cause
an accident or drive off the road into another person's property.
Times-Tribune reports that the new law authorizes police officers to pull over vehicles
in which the driver is using a cellular phone for texting. However, enforcement
may be difficult because the law does not ban dialing a number on a cell
phone. Confusion and inconsistent enforcement may result from the ambiguity
in the verbiage of the law. The offense carries a $50 fine and is classified
as a summary offense.
If you or someone you love is a victim of a car accident caused by a reckless
or careless driver, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and
any financial losses. Negligent behavior often leads to tragedies and
loss of life which can never be replaced, but as an innocent victim, you
are entitled to compensation to help heal the void and financial burden
involuntarily placed upon your shoulders. Don't let those who acted
carelessly off the hook when you are still suffering from their negligence!
