What These Lawyers Stand For
Distracted Driving is an issue that our firm is very passionate about. It’s a very personal issue because every day we represent victims and survivors whose lives have been shattered and changed forever because of distracted driving.
Because of the victims we see in our practice, we want to change attitudes and perceptions about texting and driving, so that the average person can get the message about how very dangerous texting and driving really is. The National Highway Safety Administration just released a study that concluded that texting and driving was six times more dangerous than drinking and driving.
Going back 35 years ago, the average person did not appreciate how dangerous it was to drink and drive. Advocates like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) created public awareness campaigns that changed peoples’ attitudes about drunk diving. Their efforts have cut in half the deadly toll of people killed in drunk driving accidents.
Today, our situation with the problem of texting and driving is like it was 35 years ago with drunk driving. I want to do everything I can to raise public awareness about distracted driving to make our roads safer and reduce this problem. To help raise awareness, my firm and WHNT have partnered to offer this image that you can post on social media or make your cover photo on Facebook.
