When it comes to driving, many people do not realize that it is a privilege and not a right to have a driver’s license. Part of this privilege is following all of the rules of the road. The laws are put in place to keep people safe, however, there are just some things that should be common sense and not a matter of law.
There are many different laws in place when it comes to distracted driving. Many cities in Texas have enacted a ban on cell phone usage while operating a motor vehicle. Some of these bans specifically include text messaging while others do not. Most of these ordinances do allow hands free devices to be used instead of holding the phone by hand. However, in a court of law, the driver can still be deemed as distracted while driving if they were using a hands free device.
What about other distractions? We live in a technology based and very high volume, fast paced society that makes most people feel that they need to be doing at least two things at once in order to get ahead. We have all seen people having lunch behind the wheel, applying makeup while driving or even reading the newspaper. Most of us can agree that it is distracting to do those things. But what about looking for something good on the radio or changing the CD or the music on your iPod? The fact of the matter that doing anything behind the wheel besides driving can be considered distracted driving and can lead to an accident.
