We’ve all driven on roads and noticed drivers beside us, possibly not paying attention due to early driving, a long red light, or distractions like phones, eating, or grooming. This is alarmingly common, and it’s even more concerning when witnessing drivers going over 70 mph on Florida’s highways. Unfortunately, Florida saw over 3,500 motor vehicle accident deaths in 2021 due to distracted driving. Let’s face it, distracted driving isn’t a new issue. Back in my childhood, I dealt with CDs and the occasional distraction, but now, phones are everywhere, constantly buzzing with notifications. It’s crucial to realize that responding to a Facebook notification can wait. Prioritize safety, and wait until later to check it, possibly saving a life. Exercise patience and vigilance. If you find yourself a victim of someone else’s negligence due to distracted driving, remember, I’m here to help. Reach out to Scott at Leaser Law Firm.
