A recent study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that nearly 20 percent of vehicle accidents resulting in injury annually involve distracted driving.
Fortunately, North Carolina has made texting and emailing while driving illegal. When drivers choose to break the law by using cellphones and other devices on the road, they can be held financially responsible for the significant harm they cause.
