Jacksonville police officer, Amanda Meyer, was distracted by her laptop in her police vehicle just prior to rear-ending a truck on Zoo Parkway this week. All police cars in Jacksonville have an in-car computer just to the right of the steering wheel. Meyer was going 40-45 miles per hour when the collision occurred. The driver of the truck was not injured.
Although it makes sense, JSO has no policy about officers using their in-car computers while driving. Even if JSO did have that policy, it may not have prevented this accident.
