Everyone by now knows that key ingredients to a disaster cocktail are two eyes off the road + one hand off the wheel. Sound familiar? Believe it or not, many human beings believe their cognitive skills are such that they can multi-task better than a PC and thus engage in risky driving behavior, such as texting while driving, which, if you really think about it, is the same thing as closing your eyes while driving.

 

Are you okay with your chauffeurs closing their eyes while navigating this turnpike or calculating the transition to this on-ramp or that off-ramp? Neither should you be okay with them using their cell phones while driving. If common sense can’t persuade you, maybe dollars and cents can: “Expert Trial Attorney on Distracted Driving Risk” explains how and why companies are legally liable for damages that result from employee cell phone use.

 

If that’s not enough, watch Workers’ Comp Lawyer Discusses Distracted Driving” to learn how employers can be liable for workers’ comp if an employee injures him or herself doing something he or she shouldn’t, i.e. texting while driving.

 

And as a bonus treat, listen to this lovely jingle called “Won’t Start Texting” from the point-of-view of a driver determined not to text while driving.
