In 2008, Minnesota enacted legislation that makes it illegal to text message, e-mail, or access the Web on a wireless device while driving. Police officers can now legally stop drivers if they suspect that they are breaking the law, and the violation carries up to a $300 fine.
When a distracted driver takes his or her eyes off the road for even a second, the results can be devastating. Due to recent media attention, most drivers know that text messaging and accessing the Web while driving is dangerous. Unfortunately, car accidents caused by cell phone use and texting still happen.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by distracted driving, contact Swor & Gatto, P.A., for legal guidance and support.
