Lately, I’ve been posting at this blog about the dangers of “distracted driving.” I did that for the simple reason of trying to raise awareness of this scourge which is even more dangerous than driving while intoxicated. I’ve posted results of studies and even a heart-rending video of a young girl who was involved in an accident while fielding a text from her mother. Perhaps your reaction to the results of the studies was; “Too wonkish.” Perhaps your thoughts upon watching the video were: “Poor kid but that’ll never happen to me.”
Let me try another approach, then. Let me make my point another way: Understand that defense attorneys will subpoena records from your cell phone service provider. If you were using your device at about the time of the accident, that fact will be recorded in black-and-white and you can be certain the defense attorney will try to use that fact to blame you for the accident. Close proximity in time between the end of a cell phone call or text and the estimated time of impact renders the billing record probative. See Scianni v. Suriano, No. A-4415-O5T5, 2007 WL 506206, at *3 (App. Div. Feb. 20, 2007).
