I represent people who have been injured in car accidents — cars are the deadliest of weapons. Distracted drivers who believe that they're different than other drivers, that they are in control when their eyes leave the road, are delusional. It takes no more than a split second for your car to veer off its path and strike an innocent pedestrian, bicyclist, motorcyclist or other car. The injuries range from whiplash to paralysis to death.
Doing what I do for a living makes me hyperconscious of the perils of distracted driving.
When I see someone texting while driving, my blood begins to boil. I just want to jump out of my car, run over to that person and shake them into reality, let them know that they are a millisecond away from killing someone.
Bottom line: Please don't text while driving.
