DISTRACTED DRIVING CAUSES ACCIDENT MN STATE PATROL
Here is a Facebook post from the Minnesota State Patrol today:
Troopers stopped 102 motorists for driving distracted during two four-hour shifts last week. Think about that: More than 100 people were seen driving distracted over the course of eight hours in MN. They could have been in the vehicle next to you.
If you’re distracted, you’re not driving. Put away the phones and put your eyes on the road.
Our MN car accident lawyers get calls EVERY DAY from people injured in a crash because another driver wasn’t paying attention – either looking at their phone, adjusting the vehicle infotainment controls, etc. Many of the injuries are serious and sometimes people die. These tragedies are preventable. People just need to understand the seriousness of always paying attention while they are driving. It just takes a few seconds of driver inattention for a life-changing crash to occur. It is good that the MN State Patrol is making this effort, but it is a difficult battle to get drivers to put down their distractions and focus on driving.
If you are injured in a car accident call us and speak with a MN attorney for a free consultation. Our lawyers have handled hundreds of car crash cases throughout Minnesota over the past 25 years. We will explain your rights to you and make sure you get the compensation you are entitled to.
