2nd National Distracted Driving Summit On 9/21 | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

Posted by: Salvatore J. Zambri, founding member and senior partner

As you know from reading my blogs, I have been giving presentations for years to students throughout the Metro area about the dangers associated with driving while being distracted (through cell phone use, texting, drinking, loud music, rubber-necking, etc.).  The Department of Transportation has announced that it will hold its second National Distracted Driving Summit on September 21.  I applaud this effort.

The DOT stated on its website:

“From the powerful momentum of last year’s distracted driving summit, we’ve seen some important efforts emerge in the fight against this deadly epidemic. But we’re not about to rest now.

That’s why we’re hosting a second National Distracted Driving Summit on September 21 here in Washington, DC. By getting the best minds together, we think we can figure out effective ways to get people to put down their phones and pay attention to the road.”

Distracted driving is an epidemic indeed.  We need stronger regulation, greater education, and cooperation by parents and communities to resolve the problem.  If we don’t act fast, millions of people will be severely injured or killed.

Here are a few of my previous blogs about distracted driving that you may find interesting:

Let’s prevent a car accident. Please drive safely.
