Texting While Driving Truckers
A Maine lawyer can fight for victims of texting and driving trucking accidents
Texting and driving accidents are a relatively new problem on the roads in Maine. Maine law makes it illegal for drivers to send or receive text messages under the distracted-driving law. Truckers also face federal laws banning texting while driving. In January 2010, the federal government formally barred truckers and bus drivers from sending text messages while driving. The legislation is part of a growing effort to make laws to eliminate the threat of distracted drivers.

Text messaging and driving: a deadly combination
Truckers who send or receive text messages are 23 times more likely to be involved in a truck crash than truckers who do not text behind the wheel, according to an analysis by Virginia Tech’s Transportation Institute.
Through no fault of your own, you can suddenly sustain a serious injury in a tractor-trailer crash because a driver was looking at a texting device instead of looking at the road.
