Texting or distracted driving can lead to accidents. It can also to lead to liability, in particular if you’re using any type of a mobile device – you can call it texting, you can call it Facebook, you can call it Snapchat, Instagram – however you use that device, if it distracts your ability to maintain a lookout in the direction in which you are driving then you’re likely going to have a problem.
Also with the ability to recover the metadata from the actual device the investigation of these accidents has taken on a whole new turn. So you need to be careful when you’re operating a vehicle and understand that you need to be paying attention to the roadway as a responsible driver and as an individual that cares about the rights and the shared roadway with others.
