    I trust you are checking to see if these drivers are on their cell phones, talking or texting, around the time of the accident.

      how do you check that?

      • Rick Rock says:

        Phone records. The cell phone companies know if the phone was in use at any given time.

      Phone records may show a call but what if the person is using a bluetooth or hand free device.
