Are you addicted to your cell phone?

 

We just realized that every single person in our Walden office has their cell phone sitting on their desk, usually right next to their keyboard.  Every.  Single.  One.  Of.  Us.

We are cell phone addicts.  We check our phones while brushing our teeth, before we get out of bed in the morning, and while watching television.  Is this just fear of missing out (#FOMO) or are we truly addicted?  No matter what you call it, checking your cell phone while driving can negatively impact your car insurance premiums!

If you are caught using your cell phone while behind the wheel you could rack up almost 5 points on your drivers license and that will definitely increase your auto insurance premiums and, in some cases, could cause your insurance company to not renew your insurance at all.  Court fees, fines, increased insurance costs, the total could run into the thousands, it simply isn’t worth it.

Here is the other cost of cell phone use while driving –
