The fact that distracted driving is a leading cause of auto accidents is well documented. Sources as varied as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Insurance Institute for Highway safety, and myriad nonprofits and educational institutions have shown that risks for accidents are significantly increased when things such as cellphones, hands-free devices, and on-board electronics are used. However, proving that a driver was distracted at the time of an accident is not always an easy task.
