Need help deciding on a New Year’s resolution? At Crossen Kooi Law,
our New Year’s resolution is to make 2014 the safest year yet on
the roadways! The attorneys and staff would like to reiterate our commitment
to ending distracted driving.
It’s happened to all of us. You’re driving behind a car that
appears as if the driver must be intoxicated. You keep your distance in
order to be safe. When you arrive at the stoplight, you pull next to the
car to get a better look. The driver isn’t drunk; he’s engrossed
in his cell phone. Or even more alarming, the driver is reading a book
(I’ve seen this!). While you might desire to make a citizen’s
arrest, we only encourage you to do your part to eliminate distracted
driving and spread the word about safe driving.
1.) Turn your phone to “airplane mode” when you are driving.
2.) Turn your phone to silent.
3.) If you are expecting an important call or message, pull over to a safe
spot to take the call or respond to the message.
4.) Wear a blue tooth device (but this still means NO TEXTING!).
