Distracted Driving: A Serious Problem In Louisiana
You see it every day on the road. People who are supposedly paying attention to the road and “driving” when they are actually distracted due to their cellphone, navigational system, food or drink.
Distracted driving is becoming more and more of a problem in Louisiana, causing serious injuries and even deaths. In fact, legislators have banned one of the biggest culprits — texting and driving. More recently, penalties were heightened to deem it a primary offense. This means drivers can be pulled over and cited just for this action alone (it no longer has to coincide with another traffic violation such as a DUI or speeding).
For many drivers rushing to and from work or their errands, multitasking becomes a priority over the safety of other drivers on the road. Not paying attention to the road and driving without reasonable care is negligent and causes serious injuries to other drivers and passengers.
