Driving a motor vehicle requires constant attention to the road. Texting is an activity that takes the driver’s eyes, hands, and minds off the road, creating a dangerous condition that puts the lives of others at risk.

We have a proven record of success in obtaining results for people throughout the Boston area and across Massachusetts.
Distractions Cause Disasters
Texting while driving is becoming a leading cause of car accidents across the nation. A study conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found those truck drivers who were texting while driving were 23 times as likely to cause an accident than a driver who was paying attention to the road.
When drivers take their attention off the road, even for an instant, they can miss cars stopping in front of them, leading to rear-end collisions. They can miss pedestrians, bicyclists, and other hazards. While using any electronic device while driving is dangerous, texting is perhaps the most dangerous, because it takes the greatest amount of attention.
