TENNESSEE RANKED #1 FOR FATAL ACCIDENTS INVOLVING CELL PHONES

A new study has ranked Tennessee as number 1 in the nation for the number of fatal accidents caused by drivers using cell phones. The National Safety Council also says that all-around distracted driving in general can also play a big part in such accidents. Distracted driving could be anything from texting, to changing the radio station, eating, applying makeup or anything that causes you to take your mind or eyes off the road to focus your attention somewhere else. Tennessee Highway Patrol Troopers have been trained to spot distracted drivers and have begun to buckle-down against such practices. In Tennessee, it is legal to talk on the phone or eat while driving, but it is up to officers’ discretion to decide if you are causing harm to the drivers around you.
