EMPLOYEES USE OF CELLPHONES WHILE DRIVING
BECOMES A LIABILITY FOR COMPANIES
One was a lumber salesman who crippled a 78-year-old woman. Another was driving a toy company’s van when he killed a college sophomore. When a cable company guy rammed a stopped car at 71 mph, a woman and her mother died. A driver in a company car didn’t react when traffic slowed, rear-ending a Honda in a chain-reaction crash that killed a 32-year-old woman.
All four drivers were using their cell phones. At a time when the National Safety Council estimates that about one-quarter of all crashes involve cell phones or texting — about 1.2 million accidents a year — these four crashes had something else in common.
