Henry Acciani, an car accident attorney at Columbus-based mostly law firm OConnor, Acciani & Levy, applauds the function of many technological firms featured in a new blog post who are functioning to curb distracted teen driving with mobile applications.
Cellphone apps, this kind of as Canary, can be really beneficial for mothers and fathers concerned about their teen drivers. The app can be put in on a teens telephone and then alert dad and mom whenever the teen is texting or on social media. Some car insurance businesses, this kind of as Esurance and Allstate, also provide apps and hardware to discourage the use of a cellphone whilst driving.
In accordance to data from the Nationwide Highway Targeted traffic Security Administration, the amount of people killed in distracted driving accidents decreased slightly in between 2011 and 2012, demonstrating that efforts like these are impacting street security.
We commend the organizations who are doing work to make sure that teens behind the wheel practice secure driving. Nonetheless, many grownups must also contemplate searching into how technology can make them a safer driver. Final year, a survey by a large wireless firm unveiled that a lot more adults than teens are texting and driving this information is quite disconcerting, stated Acciani.
In 2013, AT&T carried out a commuter survey and identified that 49 percent of adult commuters admitted to texting and driving a 6 percent increased price than teen drivers.
According to the NHTSA, 21 percent of teen drivers involved in fatal car accidents had been distracted by their cellphones. Approximately 11 percent of all drivers under the age of twenty concerned in fatal crashes were reported as engaging in distracted driving behaviors at the time of the crash.
OConnor, Acciani & Levy remind drivers that texting and driving is banned in the state of Ohio and in 41 other states across the nation.
