How Digital Forensics Is Used to Prove Distracted Driving
Distracted driving has been added by the National Safety Council as another leading cause of death in the United States, and in 2019, it was cited as the cause of 8.5 percent of traffic fatalities. This form of negligence does not only affect the driver but can cause problems for a wide range of people, including passengers, other drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. Using a mobile device while driving is especially risky for those employees who drive leased or company-owned cars because it leaves the employer open to liability in an accident. In order to file a lawsuit against a distracted driver, evidence that their focus was not on the road is needed. Let’s look at how digital forensics can prove a person was driving distracted.
