One of the most preventable causes of death on the road today is distracted driving. Distracted driving has killed thousands and continues to take the lives of our motorists daily.
As more and more people take to the road each day it is important that we all stay aware of or driving habits and constantly seek to improve our awareness and safety on the road.
End Distracted Driving (EndDD.org) has recently launched an updated website to help us all avoid distracted driving and ensure the safety of all those with whom we share the road. The site features real life lessons, speaker resources, feedback from the speaker participants, and provide presentations for students nationwide.
To date, over 107,000 students have attended EndDD presentations. Many of these students noted that they have even noticed their parents driving distracted.
Their featured video “Just a Few Seconds,” show viewers just how devastating a few seconds can be when you take your focus off the road.
Everyone should do their part to end distracted driving. The next time you get in your car, put down your phone, keep your eyes on the road, and make sure you don’t become “just another statistic.”
If you or someone you love has been injured or died as a result of distracted driving, it is important that you understand your rights under the law. Contacting an attorney immediately after the accident can mean the difference between pain and a swift recovery.
