Hi there,

Thanks for sharing the results of our May 2011 distracted driving survey with your readers. This is definitely an issue to which employers should be paying attention -and taking action to stop!

As the survey shows, plenty of companies are taking the important first step of putting into writing policies restricting how employees use their mobile phones - but that's not enough to avoid litigation if a crash does happen.

This blog post has a great video explanation of how distracted driving on-the-job creates liability for employers - check it out: http://zoomsafer.com/buzz/blog/video-interview-expert-trial-lawyer-on-distracted-driving-risk-and-liability/

Thanks for the opportunity to comment!

Well,a policy prohibiting cell phone use while driving is very much necessary to be implemented...cell phone use while operating the vehicle can result into a dangerous outcome..

I agree that employers definitely need to enforce the policy and discipline employees who text or use a cell when driving a company vehicle. Many folks overestimate their ability to multi-task.
