Every day our Michigan auto accident attorneys get calls from accident victims who were hit by a distracted driver. Did you know that using your cell phone while driving increases your chance of getting into an accident by 400%? Doing things like dialing a phone number or being involved in intense conversations, means you’re not really watching the road like you should. A “hands-free” device certainly helps, but can’t prevent you from becoming involved in a conversation and losing concentration. The best thing to do is to pull off the road and stop in a safe place before using your phone. With Michigan’s new texting and driving ban, this will also help you avoid a citation!
