Each year in the month of April we bring you information relating to National Distracted Driving Awareness month. This is the month where we encourage you to avoid any distractions while you’re driving because these distractions make your chances of getting into a New Haven auto accident more and more likely.
This month we have looked at many distracted driving behaviors:
- Cell phone use
- Parents and distracted driving
- Cognitive distractions while driving
- Teens and distracted driving laws
All of these behaviors can be dangerous individually, but combined, they can have a devastating impact on your ability to safely arrive at your destination. We encourage all drivers to put down their cell phones, pull over to eat a snack, put their makeup on or shave before you leave the house, and keep your eyes on the road at all times. Distracted driving behaviors are putting everyone on the road at risk.
If you or a loved one have experienced a situation where someone being distracted behind the wheel has caused an injury or worse, you may want to contact an attorney. Our experienced attorneys will be happy to assist you in protecting your long-term interests.
