Wearable devices may become the next issue in distracted driving

Over the last several years, leaps and bounds have been made in the development of mobile technology. Smartphones have become integrated into the lives of a large portion of California residents.

Drinking is often a way to celebrate a milestone or to enjoy rapid stress relief with just a few sips of alcohol. However, drinking and driving do not go hand-in-hand; when a person decides to do both simultaneously, this can cause a car accident that results in serious injury or even death because alcohol distorts a person's judgment and negatively impacts his or her coordination skills.
