Distractions have always been present for drivers. Whether it is kids in the back seat or attempting to eat in the car, when a driver takes his or her attention off the road for even a second, a serious car accident can occur.

Massachusetts Laws Governing Texting While Driving
Across the country, states are enacting stricter laws to govern and even ban cellphone use while driving. Numerous studies have shown that individuals who are talking on a cellphone or texting while driving have a higher incidence of causing accidents and serious injuries in those crashes. These individuals must be held accountable for their negligence when someone is hurt as a result.
While Massachusetts may still allow drivers who are over the age of 18 to talk on a cellphone while driving, the state has recently banned any type of texting while driving, as well as the use of any text-based communication, such as e-mail. While talking on a cellphone is dangerous, texting while driving is even more dangerous, as drivers are required to take their eyes off the road to see what they are typing into a text message. Their attention is taken away from the road and other drivers — where their focus should be — to prevent accidents from occurring.
