“From One Second To The Next” Documentary – It Can Wait

Xzavier, Chandler, Debbie, and Reggie all know the horrors of texting
& driving firsthand. Watch their stories in this It Can Wait
Documentary.

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.

Text, Drive and Kill: Go To Jail

I'm burning mad. It takes a moment to pull over to read or respond to a text, to program your GPS, to dial the phone (should you not have voice command) yet people do it while their car is moving.  And, more importantly, while other cars, bicyclists, pedestrians, cats and dogs are moving.  And while buildings are stationary.  Taking our eyes off the road seems harmless enough but it can cause injury and death.

 

In New Hampshire, 18 year old Aaron Deveau was sentenced to jail for vehicular manslaughter.  He was convicted of causing an accident which never, ever would have happened had he been watching the road.  Instead, he was texting his girlfriend. Now an innocent 55 year old grandfather has been taken from his family. His girlfriend was critically injured.  And Aaron will spend, at most, one year in jail.  And, oh yeah, his driver's license will be suspended for 15 years.

This is unconscionable.  This must stop. 

Write to your legislators and tell them NO MORE (US House of Reprentatives).
