Dialing up Danger? Cellphone Use and Fatal
Car Accidents in Tennessee

Cellphone Related Collisions by Month

As the FARS statistics indicate, using a cellphone while driving presents a risk throughout the year. Seasons change; the danger never goes away. For instance, during a warm-weather month such as May, 28 cellphone-related traffic deaths occurred. In a cold-weather month, November, 27 such crashes were recorded.

With that said, the upcoming start of the new year in January is a good time for each of us to make a promise that we won’t text, talk, e-mail, surf the Web or do any other activities with our cellphone when we get behind the wheel. Please check out our Pledge, which can be found at the bottom of this section.
