Accidents Caused by Distracted Driver

I remember being a teenager and overhearing acquaintances discuss how skilled at driving they were while they were talking on cell phones, eating, driving wile intoxicated or otherwise distracted.  I distinctly remember someone who claimed to routinely drive a manual transmission vehicle, while eating hamburgers and talking on a handheld cellphone a the same time.  This is not safe.  This behavior puts you and your loved one’s directly in harms way, through no fault of your own.  

Driving on today’s crowded roads (especially in Tampa Bay, Clearwater and Saint Petersburg and even though the I-4 Corridor, which has some of the most dangerous intersections in the United States) can be a challenge, even when your full attention is devoted to driving. Your most diligent efforts at driving cautiously, however, are severely impacted by those round you dialing cell phones, texting, updating their statuses, putting on makeup, playing with CD’s, DVD’s, stereo’s and mp3 players.  Distracted drivers present an unnecessary challenge and violate their duty to you.  Distracted drivers may swerve in front of you, fail to recognize traffic has suddenly come to a standstill, run red lights and violate numerous other traffic laws because their attention is not on driving.

Unfortunately, it is this kind of distracted and negligent driving (Driving While Distracted, or DWD) that can lead to accidents and cause innocent drivers, passengers and even pedestrians to suffer serious injuries.
