North Carolina Distracted Driving Laws
In North Carolina, it is illegal to:
- Read or send text messages while driving
- Use a cellphone of any kind if you are a bus driver or novice driver
It is not illegal for most drivers to use cellphones while driving, nor is texting illegal while your vehicle is stopped. However, evidence of cellphone use can still be a factor in determining fault in a motor vehicle accident. Juries do not like it when distracted drivers cause accidents that injure or kill innocent people.
Our lawyers can obtain cellphone records, witness statements and other evidence to build the strongest possible case against the negligent driver.
