Distracted drivers influencing high accident fatality rates
Posted on Thursday, June 4th, 2015
Ten car accident fatalities have occurred in the region that includes the Tennessee counties Wayne and Lawrence, as well as northwest Alabama, in May alone, the Times Daily reported on May 31. This is more accidents in May than have occurred in the past nine years.
According to Sergeant Chris Ticer of the Florence Police Department, who is the supervisor for the department’s traffic division, many of the accidents were caused by people texting or talking on their cellular phones while driving, despite their claims otherwise.
