Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth… Ontario Provincial Police have a new focus: distracted drivers. The OPP are going to crack down on people driving who are doing almost anything other than driving. Yes, that’s right. What does that mean? It could be cell phone or texting, fiddling with the radio in the car, eating and drinking, smoking, dealing with children. Anything that distracts drivers from the road. I can honestly say as an Ottawa personal injury lawyer, there are far too many accidents as a result of distracted driving. 2012 has just begun and already we have 8 people who have been killed on Ontario highways due to distracted driving.
I know we are all in a rush but please put the phone away. Don’t even keep it within arms reach when driving. That way you won’t be tempted to answer it. Return your calls/texts when you arrive SAFELY at your destination. Before cell phones, people managed and so can we.
Please drive safely out there ! -Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth
