Texting While Driving, Cellphone Use a Growing Epidemic
As more and more people live their lives plugged into their cell phones, distracted driving has become a leading cause of death and injury on our highways. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, more that 3,000 people were killed in distracted driving crashes in 2010 alone.
Tennessee currently bans texting while driving. Drivers with learner's permits or intermediate licenses are also prohibited from using hand-held cellphones while driving. A law to ban use of hand-held cellphones for all drivers may be on the horizon.
Even if the use of a hand-held cellphone is not illegal in Tennessee, it can be a factor in determining liability in auto accidents. Jurors do not like it when distracted drivers injure and kill innocent people.
