Can You Be Ticketed for Distracted Driving?

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On April 22, 2013 (EST)

In most states, you can be pulled over and ticketed for texting while driving. Some states also ban handheld cell phone use. Look up the laws in your state and wherever you plan to drive.

Any activity that distracts a driver can lead to a serious accident. Other common distractions include eating and drinking, grooming, reading maps/directions, adjusting the radio, and more. These activities may seem harmless, but the fact is that hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. are killed or injured every year as a result of distracted driving.

What can you do? Concentrate on driving when you're behind the wheel--it's not the time for multi-tasking.
