AMA asks all state lawmakers pass laws limiting driver cell phone use. National doctors organization urges states to protect consumers from injury and death.

December 23, 2008, West Palm Beach, FL (–Justice roadway safety advocates and West Palm Beach auto accident lawyers are joining the American Medical Association’s (AMA) ban against text messaging while driving initiative. In early November 2008, the AMA issued a public health risk alert at its semi-annual policy-making meeting. AMA voted to advocate for state legislation prohibiting the use of hand-held devices to text message while driving affirming it is a public health risk.

JNF roadway and highway safety advocates report the AMA states text messaging while driving takes the driver’s attention away from the road and this leads to accidents. The AMA sites a recent study reflects text messaging while driving causes a 400% increase time spent with eyes off the road. American drivers and passengers should not have to be concerned that other drivers are focused on texting instead of traffic.

Justice reporters also learned the new AMA policy encourages physicians to educate patients on the public health risks associated with driving while distracted with text messages and cell phones. The AMA is supporting any state legislature enacting laws to eliminate the use of text messaging by motorists while driving. If you or someone you know has been injured by a driver too busy text messaging you may be entitled to compensation.
