Now I admit that there are times that I wouldn’t get where I need to go without directions from a map service. But as a Denver personal injury attorney, I can see the logic. The court said the “primary evil” is the driver being distracted when using his or her hands to operate the phone. That holds true whether a driver is making a phone call, texting, using a map service or just checking the phone’s clock. It’s the fact that a driver is distracted that can lead to a crash.
So I guess if I need help navigating the streets of Denver, I’ll be pulling over to check on where I’m going. Please do the same.
