Long Beach Auto Body Shop Helps You With New Traffic Safety Laws

Every year lawmakers come up with new rules to improve traffic safety. We see a lot of vehicles in need of auto body repair due to drivers using mobile phones while driving. Stay safe so you can avoid a visit to our collision repair center.

Hands off your phones! Motorists are no longer permitted to hold a wireless telephone or electronic wireless communications device while driving a motor vehicle. They must be mounted to the windshield and can only be used with a single swipe or tap of the finger, but not while holding it.

See the new 2017 laws here on the CHP website.

Texting while driving has lead to an increase in serious accidents caused by distracted drivers. This is more problematic with young drivers as 38% of distracted drivers in fatal accidents are in their 20s according to the NHTSA. Studies have shown that on average, five seconds is the average time your eyes are off the road while texting. At 55 mph, that’s enough to cover the length of a football field. That’s why it’s always a good idea to put the phone down and wait until you aren’t behind the wheel. It could be a matter of life and death.

We just hope you avoid an accident. No one wants to be in a collision and have to make an insurance claim...but if you do, give our friendly staff a call at 562-426-2639 and we'll help you every step of the way.
