Texting a Driver in NJ May Make People Liable for Accidents
Replying to: Really? by Slammer
A valid point here is as the driver, your eyes should be fixed on the road. Not some billboard, cell phone, or anything else. Especially a cell phone. Whoever calls or text you can wait till you have gotten to your destination or pull over in some parking lot to answer a text or a call. Is it worth answering that phone or taking someone's life.
But honestly, you can't hold the sender liable for sending one or one hundred texts. It is the driver's choice to pick up that phone or not. If the driver stops at a red light and text back "Driving. Get back with you in a few minutes". That's fine. But not while you are driving.
