Are hands free commands safer than texting and driving?

The risks involved with texting while driving were outlined in last week's post on the Cincinnati Car Accident Law Blog and many Ohio drivers may be familiar with the often touted statistic that drivers who take their eyes off the road for the average time it takes to send or receive a text-4.6 seconds-take their eyes off the road for the entire length of a football field at an average speed of 55 miles per hour. Many drivers may think the solution to this is to use hands free commands, now available in many mobile phone operating systems. However, according to a recent study, they would be wrong.

Teenagers admit to texting and driving regularly

Even though most drivers are aware of the dangers of texting and driving, many still engage in the risky behavior. This is not conjecture-in a recent survey, 90 percent of drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 acknowledged the dangers of texting and driving but a shocking 44 percent admitted to still doing it.

We work quickly to gather evidence in truck accidents

Even though truck driver's hours and working conditions are strictly regulated by federal regulations as mentioned in last week's blog post, these regulations are often overlooked by the drivers and the trucking industry itself. Long haul trucks are the crux of our economy, transporting goods from one state to another, so it is not possible to completely remove them from the roadways to create safer roads, but it may be possible to reduce the number of truck crashes and create awareness about the issue by filing a civil suit against a truck driver who causes an accident.

Are truck driver's working hours regulated?

A commercial motor vehicle is one that is used as part of a business and is involved in interstate commerce. In addition to this, it either weighs 10,001 pounds or more or has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating the same as mentioned above, can transport 16 passengers or more not for compensation or 9 passengers or more for compensation or transporting hazardous materials in a specified quantity. Many Ohio residents may see these vehicles on the road and refer to them as trucks or 18-wheeler trucks.
