excerpt:


The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Traffic Tribunal sitting in Providence Rhode Island issued a texting while driving / distracted driving legal appellate decision in STATE OF RHODE ISLAND v JASON KILSEY C.A. No. T13-0056 : 13001519371

(Keep in mind that this Court is a low level Court which is not binding precedent on the Providence Superior Court or the RI District Court or The Rhode Island Supreme Court.)

Thankfully, there was no motor vehicle crash or car accident or anyone injured as a result of this incident!


Read Rhode Island’s Texting While Driving Statute§ 31-22-30  Text messaging while operating a motor vehicle


The Court sustained the Trial Judges decision finding no abuse of discretion because there was sufficient evidence to support finding that the alleged violator was reading a text message which is clearly prohibited by the texting while driving statute. The Court reasoned that “The legislature’s intent when drafting and enacting section 31-22-30 (b) was to prohibit inattentive driving caused by composing, reading, or sending text messages. SeePartington, 681 A.2d at 260.” Id.

Gladys Wiles's insight:

Alaska, seems to be on the right track in detering Texting while Driving. The penalty, a $10,000 fine. While back at the ranch, in Pennsylvania, the penalty is a summary offense with a $50 fine, plus court costs and other fees. See the difference. #AllentownInjuryAttorney

While there are no hard statistics on how many accidents and fatalities are caused by extreme distracted drivers, there are plenty of stats on distracted driving in general.
Gladys Wiles's insight:

Careless driving or Reckless driving? Do you think there is a difference? Well your insurance company sure does. Insurance premiums increase significantly with a reckless driving charge in comparison to a carelss driving charge.  However, its all still "distracted driving" nonetheless that can cause serious injury to others. What do you think is worse, texting, drinking, reading, eating or daydreaming behind the wheel? #AllentownInjuryAttorney
