Are the laws tough enough on distracted drivers? Technology is always available, mere inches away from our fingertips at any given moment. In response to this, Indiana lawmakers passed a law in 2011 to penalize distracted drivers—such as those sending texts, emailing, or playing with the radio on their vehicles. Yet, the rate of people getting into accidents and becoming seriously injured has been rising steadily with every passing year.
