Mobile phone usage could easily cause a car accident in West Lothian or in any other part of the UK. This is because the driver is being distracted by the mobile phone conversation instead of concentrating solely on their driving. They may even be holding the phone if it is not the hands free version. Using a mobile phone whilst driving also often involves the performance of secondary tasks that can cause even more distraction for the driver. Some people try to write things down whilst driving. These can include writing down information such as a telephone numbers or dates on a piece of paper at the same time as driving AND holding a mobile phone! No wonder this causes a  car accident in West Lothian! The various forms of distraction caused by using a mobile phone can affect driving performance in several ways. Several major studies have been conducted to investigate this in more detail and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) have concluded that the use of mobile phones whilst driving can cause drivers to have problems with:

  • Maintaining the lane position of the vehicle
  • Maintaining an appropriate and predictable speed
  • Maintaining an appropriate following distance from the vehicle in front
  • Reaction times
  • Judgement and acceptance of safe gaps in traffic – foe example when pulling out at junctions
  • General awareness of other traffic

All of this adds up to a very dangerous situation and a car accident in West Lothian could easily be the result.
