According to CNN a New Jersey state appeals court has an addendum: Don’t knowingly text a driver — or you could be held liable if he causes a crash. This is spurred from a case in New Jersey where a driver had an accident that was texting that resulted in the loss of limbs from others involved in the collision.
New Jersey courts ruled that if the sender of text messages knows that the recipient is driving and texting at the same time, a court may hold the sender responsible for distraction and hold him or her liable for the accident.
Do you think being held responsible for an accident because you knowingly sent a text message to someone who is driving is fair?
