Legally Pink Law, we realize that the conveniences of modern technology have changed the
way we drive. Gone are the days of unfolding maps and navigating with
one hand on the wheel and another trying to follow road routes across
the page. Instead, we’ve come to use our GPS systems and iPhones
to map our routes for us.
In some ways, this change has made it simpler and quicker to get real-time
traffic information including route changes following auto accidents.
But with the freedom of the handheld digital map also comes the responsibility
to program it ahead of time and use audio features while driving.
If you’re headed somewhere new, be sure to enter the address and
set your route
before you out your car in drive. Then stop in a safe place if you need to make
further adjustments. Never try to program your map app while driving,
as it’s as dangerous as texting while driving. If you’ve been
in an accident because another driver wasn’t focused on the road,
