Distracted Driving Continues To Be A Problem In St. Louis

Even though laws have been put into place that are supposed to decrease the amount of distracted drivers on the road, for some, the urge to take their eyes off the road for any reason is very real. Distracted driving continues to be a problem in St. Louis, however, we’re seeing reports from all over the country that distracted driving involves more than simply using your cell phone while you drive. If you’ve been the victim of an accident that resulted from distracted driving, it’s important to contact your St. Louis personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Distracted driving is any activity that takes your attention away from the road. We mostly think of texting and cell phone use when we think of it, however, as one New Hampshire woman has found out, there is more to it than that. While driving, she claimed she took her eyes off the road for a few seconds. Those seconds were enough time to hit a group of bicyclists, killing two of them and injuring two others.

We hope that stricter laws will bring increased awareness to the dangers of distracted driving. However, the fact is, people still do it, and when they do, there are often consequences. Your St. Louis personal injury attorney will fight hard for you, if you find yourself a victim in a distracted driving accident.
