Zanes Law Group, PLLC Launches Campaign Against Cell Phone Use While Driving

Personal injury law firm, ZanesLaw.com, is taking a stand against distracted driving by launching a campaign to provide information about the fatalities related to driving and texting

Phoenix, AZ – May 29, 2018 /MarketersMedia/

Each year 2.5 million people are involved in some type of automobile accident, with 1.6 million of these accidents involving a cell phone. For several years, lawmakers have encouraged drivers to utilize the hands-free feature if using the phone was absolutely necessary.

Unfortunately, a study from 2016 showed that drivers engaging in conversations that sparked visual images were less likely to detect visual hazards than drivers not similarly distracted. These results suggested that hands-free phone usage while behind the wheel may not be as safe as once believed.

To help reduce the number of Phoenix accidents, Zanes Law Group, PLLC has launched a campaign to spread awareness of the danger using a cellphone behind the wheel presents.

“We have found that undistracted drivers perform best because they spot the most hazards, with drivers engaged with mental imagery did the worst,” stated Zanes law attorney and founder Doug Zanes. “Not only did the distracted drivers detect the least number of hazards, the tests also showed that they were focused on a smaller part of the road and missed hazards that were right in front of them.”

According to the research cited in the study, conversations are much more visual than many people think. While talking on the phone, people constantly create mental images, even if it is just of the person’s face. This news comes at a time when cellphone and smartphone use while on the road is at an all-time high.

“We are dedicated to providing drivers with the information they need to make informed decisions regarding how to stay safe on the road,” continued Zanes. “We can also provide Seattle information, as well as other areas about the dangers associated with driving while talking on the phone – even with a hands-free setup.”

Additional information about the distracted driving safety campaign created by Zanes Law Group, PLLC can be found by visiting the law firm’s website.
