Where Is Your "Safe Place" While Driving?

The media has written extensively about so called "safe spaces" on college campuses. These are places people can go to stay as safe as possible from outside influences. We thought it might be interesting to explore some of the "safe spaces" and "safe behaviors" while driving.

The initial "safe space" to consider is behind the wheel. You should be positioned with both hands on the wheel and your seat belt over your should and across your lap. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/pubs/hdbk/seatbelts Many people position the seat belt under their arm and this is both a violation of the seat belt law and extremely dangerous. According to Nick Norton the Central Commander of the California Highway Patrol "when the seat belt is positioned under the arm the spleen is at risk of rupture with certain impacts. The vehicle code is specific on how the seat belt is to be worn for very good reason."

Safe behavior while behind the wheel involves paying attention to what matters and ignoring what doesn't. Traffic ahead, behind and beside you matters and represents your biggest threat. Many experts consider distraction as your second biggest threat. Distractions can be other passengers, changing the radio station, eating and the primary culprit these day's... cell phones. Any distraction is bad... cell phone distraction is proving to be deadly. The call, text or facebook post can wait. Assuming other drivers around you are looking at their cell phone and driving accordingly might save your life and the lives of your passengers.

We represent people who are injured because of the careless and reckless acts of others. At the end of the day your case can only be settled one time and you need to know all of the facts beforehand. The reason that insurance companies have paid our clients in excess of $130,000,000.00 is that we get the facts and are not intimidated at the prospect of going to trial when they refuse to follow the law.
