Enforcing ban on texting and driving problematic in Pennsylvania

Drivers in Pennsylvania, law enforcement officials and legislators are undoubtedly aware of the risks that accompany texting and driving and other behaviors that result in being a distracted driver. While there is a law against texting and driving, there are issues with it that make it difficult for law enforcement to do anything about it. This can be a problem that can result in an auto accident, even if a driver is seen using a smartphone while driving. For those who are in a crash, the possibility that it was due to a distracted driver is significant and could be the key when seeking compensation in a legal filing.
