Texting And Driving In Minnesota

In Minnesota, drivers cannot read, compose or send electronic messages, including emails and text messages, while operating a motor vehicle. This prohibition is in effect not only when a car is moving, but also when the vehicle is considered to be a part of traffic, such as when it is stopped at a red light. For those who are 18 or younger, state law prohibits all use of a cellphone while operating a motor vehicle.

Just As Dangerous As Drunk Driving

When drivers text and drive, they become distracted and their driving ability diminishes. Numerous studies have found that those who text while drive are as impaired as those who have a .08 blood alcohol content (BAC). In fact, a University of Utah study found that the general public finds texting and driving as morally offensive as drunk driving.

We use evidence that a driver was texting when he or she caused an accident to create a powerful case and obtain compensation to pay for your medical bills, lost wages and other expenses and damages.
