Distracted drivers can cause serious accidents

New York is notorious for its crowded streets and dense population, complete with daily traffic that will put even the most seasoned of drivers on edge. Thousands of accidents occur annually in the city and state of New York, and some of them are tragic freak accidents that nobody could have avoided or predicted. However, it would be erroneous to say that all accidents are unavoidable, and there are plenty of them that may have been prevented if drivers had only paid more attention.

It seems that the more time that passes, the more distractions there are on the road. Not only are there flashing lights and billboards assaulting drivers all throughout the city, but nearly every driver has their own personal flashing light sitting in their pocket or hand: a cellphone. There are many campaigns and awareness groups encouraging drivers to ignore their phones as they drive, but not everyone complies.

What you may not know is that it is illegal to exchange text messages or use a cellphone that must be hand-held while driving. This is because it has been proven that such cellphone use makes it more likely that a driver will miss important information and become distracted, which could lead to a serious car accident.
