Distracted driving is a serious problem in this day and age. Detroit Lions wide receiver, Nate Burleson, broke his arm in a car accident. The football player had been trying to save a slice of pizza that was about to slide off the seat when he lost control of his vehicle. News reports claim that he was driving in a suburb of Detroit with two pizza boxes on his seat. He reached over to save them when he hit the center medial wall.
Burleson is scheduled to receive surgery. The New York Times asserts that alcohol was not involved.
At The Perecman Firm, we believe that driving is a luxury. Drivers operate heavy machines that can be potentially hazardous if not handled appropriately. They should keep their eyes on the road at all times and be aware of their surroundings. Drivers cannot trust that others will be paying attention.
Distracted driving is one of the major causes for the high number of car accidents. In fact, because texting while driving became such a problem, laws had to be made about it. Allowing something to take your attention away from driving is a choice, one that drivers should avoid making.
