A driver is required to maintain proper control of his or her vehicle at all times. Unfortunately, distracted driving has lead to many tragic accidents. Red lights are ignored, drivers operate a vehicle while impaired, speed limits are disregarded, people text messages or talk on cell phones while driving. Each action could lead to a lifechanging accident and some of the most severe and devastating injuries.
