It has been known for some time that “distracted driving” (I.e driving while texting, talking on a cell phone, using a lap top, etc) is a leading cause of car accidents. A new study from Temple University Shows that although the data is staggering about the effects of distracted driving, the penalties vary greatly from area to area, and often don’t fit the severity of the crime. The study concludes that use of mobile devices is increasing nationwide, despite laws to penalize distracted driving. The study notes that 11 states have no laws or penalties that restrict the use of mobile devices while driving.
