Smartphones can be a deadly distraction for young drivers

From step-by-step navigation instructions to quick emergency calls, a smartphone can make driving significantly easier and safer. While making some drivers safer, the convenience of a smartphone can also increase the likelihood of a car accident, particularly for young drivers.

Slip and fall on bus leads to lawsuit

Usually when you hear the word "premises" you think of a building or stationary structure. Add that in with "liability," and you probably think of an old, dilapidated building with dangerous conditions that pose a threat to anyone. What you probably wouldn't consider when you hear "premises" is your local bus.

Numerous laws address distracted driving in Louisiana

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a post about a motor vehicle device that aims to prevent people from receiving texts, social media alerts and other notifications on their phone, as well as preventing the driver from sending any messages or using the internet on their phone. It is a great idea, and one that is welcome in this time of uncertainty out on the road. Too often, people can be seen looking down at a white cellphone screen when their attention should be focused on what's in front of them: the road.
