Study: Smartwatches More Distracting than Smartphones

Posted on behalf of Greg Coleman Law on May 27, 2015 in Auto Accident

Tennessee Distracted Driver Accident LawyerWill smartwatches make the roadways across America more dangerous? Critics say yes.

Many people say the real danger is when a driver uses a smartwatch to look at notifications and communicate. Not only can the electronic device send emails, but it vibrates when you receive notifications. Would you be tempted to look even if you were driving?

When the unexpected happens you need a lawyer you can trust. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver contact us by filling out the form to the right. 

Weve all seen the countless studies that show texting while driving increases the risk of a crash. Experts have told us that using a cell phone while driving is comparable to driving while under the influence of alcohol. Still, people continue to engage in this dangerous behavior.  And safety advocates say no matter how you spin it, and no matter how skilled of a driver you may be, smartwatches and driving are a recipe for disaster.

There are even new studies which highlight safety tests showing that smartwatches are more distracting than smartphones. When you consider that cell phones are involved in nearly 30 percent of all U.S. traffic accidents critics say it's proof were making a bad situation even worse.
