The Center for Disease Control (CDC) says 34% of people between 18 & 64 do this and according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will result in 3,500 people dying and 400,000 injuries this year. The penalty for doing this is minimal, people freely admit they do it and no one has the courage to address the issue and any of us could be the next victim. “It” is distracted driving.
Safety advocates and researchers agree that increasing penalties will do little to solve this issue. Combining these measures with educational programs, peer pressure and using technology to disable wireless devices are the next logical step. The NTHSA has even published a 24 page guide for prosecutors on the best ways to convict those accused of distracted driving causing injury or death.
Everyone thinks they are the safe person and have the ability to safely drive distracted. Sending or reading a text message takes your eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds and at 55 mph your car will travel the length of a football field without visual guidance. When you hear people talking about distracted driving and they say “There but for the grace of God go I” or if you’re at a party and some says “I am probably one of the worst offenders” have the courage to speak up and educate them that you are on that road as well. You could also bring them into our law office and we will introduce them to someone whose been badly injured as a result of this activity. Ramsey Brown is the co-founder and COO of Dopamine labs in Venice, Ca says “We need to find some way to make it cool to get angry at your friend when they text and drive. We need to make distracted driving wickedly unsexy.” We agree!

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
