Unfortunately, as a Detroit auto accidents lawyer, the effects of distracted driving couldn’t be clearer. I see people whose lives are shattered due to someone else’s carelessness behind the wheel. Now the state has decided to update laws in an effort to decrease the amount of accidents occurring because a driver is distracted.

Michigan just took another step to help make our roads safer. On November 1, the state updated a law that increases restrictions on the use of cellular phones while driving. It is now illegal to use a hand held device to answer, send or compose a text message. Additionally, it is now illegal to use a cell phone if the driver must press more than one button or if the phone is being held in one hand.
