At Legally Pink Law, PLLC, 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, contact your Orlando car accident attorney today. And safe travels!
