Absolutely. As a matter of fact, just recently we’ve had two wrongful death cases involving the at-fault driver being on the cell phone. Statistics show that just any basic use of a cell phone renders the driver five times more likely to be in a car accident. Statistics show that attention distracted to the cell phone usage takes your eyes off the road or your attention off the road for five seconds. Now at 60 miles an hour, that’s 1.5 times a football field that the driver is driving, in essence, blind.
