Orlando Distracted Driving Accident Attorney
The privilege to drive is a big responsibility that many be taken for granted. Driving a vehicle involves the coordination of your vision and reflexes. Anything that interferes with your concentration, vision, and ability to respond can be considered a driving distraction.
When someone mentions distracted driving, immediately we think of texting while driving or talking on a cell phone while driving. But the truth is, there are many other ways a driver can be distracted.
Some of the most common driving distractions are:
- Talking to other passengers in the car
- Tuning a car radio and media devices
- Drinking and/or eating
- Rubbernecking and/or looking at something outside the vehicle
- Applying makeup
- Talking on a cell phone
- Texting or emailing

Driving While Using Cell Phones, Smart Phones, and Mobile Devices
Much attention is being given to distracted driving, as the number of incidents nationwide has increased significantly. Distracted driving has become a much-discussed topic with lawmakers in the past few years. Driving while using a mobile phone can hinder a driver’s reactions as much as driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent. With the advent of smartphones and similar mobile devices over the past decade, the problem has increased further. Not only are individuals talking on cell phones while driving, but they are texting, emailing, watching videos, and other distracting activities.
Teen drivers are the most affected. According to the NHSTA, the leading cause of wrongful death for teens between the ages of fifteen and twenty is car crashes. Most car accidents occur when there are multiple teens in the car. Teen drivers are often overconfident, which means they feel comfortable texting while driving or engaging in other mobile phone activities. Unfortunately, the results can be disastrous, leading to serious automobile accidents and wrongful death.
“Cell-phone texting has become the preferred channel of basic communication between teens and their friends, and cell calling is a close second. Some 75% of 12-17 year-olds now own cell phones, up from 45% in 2004. Those phones have become indispensable tools in teen communication patterns. Fully 72% of all teens – or 88% of teen cell phone users — are text messages. That is a sharp rise from 51% of teens who were texters in 2006. More than half of teens (54%) are daily texters.” — Pew Internet
