1 in 6 Drivers Distracted in School Zones l Kirkland Crosswalk Accident LawyerPosted on Sep 01, 2009
How can you drive and read at the same time? Reading takes time to do, you actually have to look at the words for several seconds at a time. A car can travel a long distance in a few seconds, a kid can jump into the road in a few seconds, you can approach an occupied crosswalk in a few seconds. Seriously scary stuff!
With recent studies indicating that distracted drivers are as bad or worse than intoxicated drivers, this is scary for our kids. That mean one in six drivers is acting like a drunk driver while passing a school. Multitasking while driving is a bad idea that can have deadly serious consequences. Drivers need to turn off the cell phone, put down the cheeseburger, and just drive. Our kids deserve your complete attention and focus when driving in school zones.
