What You Should Know About Distracted Driving Accidents In Ohio
In most counties in Ohio, drivers of all ages are forbidden from texting while driving. Studies show that texting, making calls and doing related tasks make the likelihood of an accident three times greater. Yet countless people still choose to send or receive text messages behind the wheel. In fact, at any moment of the day across the U.S., more than 600,000 drivers are talking on their phones or using other electronic devices.*
