GoldenbergLaw’s accident lawyers have long treated distracted driving awareness as year-long endeavor. We’ve spent years urging Minneapolis residents and drivers throughout the state to pay full attention when on the road.
But April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, which makes this an excellent time to renew our call for fully engaged driving. Keeping your eyes and your mind on the road at all times can save your life, and that’s no hyperbole.
You can visit the government’s Distracted Driving website for more information, but the facts are quite clear. Thousands of people die every year as a result of distracted driving, a reality made even more tragic by how utterly avoidable it is.
Don’t text while you’re driving. Don’t make phone calls while you’re driving. Don’t take your eyes off the road to change the radio station or to hold a conversation with a passenger. And don’t read or apply makeup or shave or make any of the mistakes Americans habitually make.
Our accident lawyers want you to be safe. Your first responsibility when you get behind the wheel is to exercise vigilance at all times. Remember that throughout Distracted Driving Awareness Month and thereafter.
If you live in Minneapolis or any other Minnesota community and you need an experienced accident lawyer, please call GoldenbergLaw at (800) 504-0281 or contact us online for a free consultation.
