The Dangers of Texting While Driving (and Parenting)
BOISE and NAMPA, Idaho. According to the Centers for Disease Control, every day over 1,000 people are personally injured, and at least 8 people die due to distracted driving. Distracted driving has often been linked to the increased popularity of smart phones, apps, and navigation applications. The frightening reality is that more people than ever are using their phones while driving. The Law Office of Johnson & Lundgreen are personal injury lawyers who handle far too many cases where individuals could have avoided deadly and devastating accidents by choosing not to engage in distracted driving. While individuals may know that texting and driving can endanger other drivers, children in their car, and their own safety, individuals may not be aware of other problems that smartphone use while parenting can cause.
