Ban on Using Mobile Phones While Driving Would Prevent Needless Deaths
Carol Jackson, a specialist personal injury solicitor at Manchester Law Firm Pannone LLP says that the number of road traffic accidents could be reduced by drivers not using any type of mobile phone whilst they are driving.
Her comments were made after a four and a half year sentence was handed down to a lorry driver who was using a hands free mobile phone to speak to his mother. He was so engrossed in his conversation he failed to notice a line of stationary traffic and instead of slowing down, ploughed into the back of it, fatally injuring one and seriously injuring two others.
Families left devastated.
Carol Jackson, who specialises in fatal accident claims said, “Pannone are involved in a number of cases in which families have been left devastated by the loss of a loved one in road traffic accidents. Even using a ”hands free“ mobile phone carried considerable risk to the driver and to other road users as it breaks the driver’s concentration and can lead to accidents, often with tragic results. It is far safer not to have the conversation at all, or to pull over and always keep the conversation as brief as possible.”
Carol added that the tightening up of driving laws could help to prevent needless deaths caused by drivers not concentrating whilst driving. This supports the stance taken by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents that have also renewed calls to ban all mobile phone calls whilst driving.
