Marasco & Nesselbush Hails Technologies to Reduce Texting and Driving

Published

In conjunction with National Teen Driver Safety Week, taking place October 18-24, Marasco & Nesselbush is urging its clients and friends who are parents or guardians of teen drivers to talk with their teens about traffic safety issues.

As New England’s trusted personal injury and Social Security Disability law firm, Marasco & Nesselbush has handled thousands of motor vehicle accident cases that have resulted in death or serious injury.

“We applaud government leaders and safety advocates for their efforts to enact tougher laws to combat distracted driving,” said Marasco & Nesselbush Partner Joseph P. Marasco. “We have worked with too many families in recent years who have been devastated over the death or serious injury of a loved one due to distracted driving-related accidents.”

Marasco hailed technology advances that allow texting apps to be disabled when cell phones are in a moving vehicle and encouraged more families to learn about texting and driver safety. These technologies include Live2Txt, an Android™ app that allows you to block incoming texts and calls while driving. Canary is also considered a great option for concerned parents, as it offers instant feedback on your child’s behavior while behind the wheel. More information about both apps is available on Verizon.com.
