Atlanta Auto Accident and Medical Malpractice Attorney
When commuters are traveling on Georgia roads during rush hour, many of them are on phone calls. Some of these phone calls are conference calls and training calls that workers are required to participate in.

Taking a phone call while driving is already dangerous, as it has been linked to distracted driving and an increase in Marietta auto accidents. However, conference calls may, in fact, be worse than other types of phone calls. When drivers are listening or participating in conference calls they have to:
  • Actively listen
  • Engage in questions and answers
  • Learn about a new process 
  • Take notes about the meeting or something they learned
  • Make mental notes about the follow-up processes
  • Process new information
These actions cause a driver's mind not to be focused on driving, but rather on the conference call itself. This can pose a real danger not only to the driver engaged in a conference call, but also to innocent motorists around him.

The Marietta auto attorneys at The Dover Law Firm would like to remind Georgia drivers not drive distracted.
