Should cellphone providers be liable for distracted driving crashes?

If you had the power to save lives, would you use it? What if this power came with a price, if using this power could potentially result in lost revenue? This is the question many cellphone companies are being forced to answer as new technology is present that could keep drivers from using their cellphones while driving.

New tech allows cops to check for cellphone use prior to accident

There are pros and cons to technological advances. Rear view cameras in cars have helped to increase a driver's ability to monitor his or her surroundings while the vehicle is in reverse, weather satellites have resulted in more warning time for dangerous weather and cellphones have allowed for people to keep in touch with each other no matter where they are. Unfortunately, some take this last advance to the extreme, making calls, sending texts and even checking social media sites while driving. This practice isn't just dangerous, it's illegal. It is not always immediately clear if a driver was engaged in this dangerous and illegal activity prior to involvement in an accident. However, a new device may help to answer this question with a simple and quick scan.
