April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

People contact our office everyday who have been a victim of someone who was distracted while driving. Sometimes it's eating, texting, talking to passengers, or just zoning out while driving, but the results are tremendous. People end up being seriously injured after a driver runs a stop light, or crossing into other lanes. We all know that it's dangerous to be distracted while driving but why do we still do it? We all think that it won't happen to us, that we are a good driver, or that we are capable of doing multiple things at once. It's been proven though that your brain doesn't multitask while driving, it wholly focuses in on one thing or the other. So when you are texting and driving, you're actually texting and then driving. Even when you are talking on your cell phone you could be missing 50% of the driving environment around you. What you are missing could be important and life changing.

Most of the cases we handle are a result of distracted driving and we are dedicated to helping those that have been effected. It's very unfortunate because most of the time the car accident could have been avoided, but now innocent people have been hurt. We want to make everyone aware that these incidents are avoidable and that YOU have to make the choice to be a safe driver.

Why do you think people let themselves get distracted while driving?

We challenge you to take the pledge to drive distraction free here: Take The Pledge
