Roseville Distracted Driving Accident

Roseville Distracted Driving Accident
I’m Ed Smith, a Roseville Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer. For the most part, the streets of Roseville, California are safe – drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists obey the laws. Unfortunately, as more of us use mobile technology like smart phones, GPS devices, and even smart watches, we face an increase in distracted drivers who think they can use a mobile device and drive at the same time.

Before the Impact Today in Elk Grove

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove Car Accident Lawyer. The Elk Grove Police Department and the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office will present Before the Impact prevention program today, Saturday February 6, 2016 from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. The safe driver program may be attended  by showing up at  8400 Laguna Palms Way in Elk Grove.

This excellent and powerful program focuses on the tragic impact of making unsafe and poor driving decisions. This includes driving while intoxicated and distracted driving.  The program also discusses the dangers of getting into a car as a passenger with an unsafe driver. Many times, it is the passenger’s injuries that are greater than the driver who is distracted or impaired.

Be careful honey, you only die once . . .

My mother would often say “You only die once” as I exited the front door of our family home to hop into the passenger seat of a car driven by a friend of mine.

I was about fifteen-years-old when she first used that phrase on me.

Elk Grove's Distracted Drivers
Before the Impact comes to Elk Grove

The Elk Grove Police Department joined forces with the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office to bring Before the Impact prevention program to Elk Grove and citizens throughout Sacramento County.

The program focuses on the impact of making unsafe driving decisions, including driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and distracted driving.  The program also focuses on the risk of riding in cars with unsafe drivers.  Many times, a passenger’s injuries are greater than that of the distracted or impaired driver.

Young drivers are involved in more collisions than more experienced drivers, and that is reflected in their insurance rates.  Safe driving involves good judgment.  Risk taking often results in unsafe driving.  Good judgement and the unwillingness to take unnecessary risks usually take time to develop, but there are strategies and programs that are designed to offset the risks associated with young and inexperienced drivers.

All 50 states have adopted laws that put provisions on the license of early drivers.  They vary according to state, but below are the California restrictions, which last for one year after obtaining a license, or until the driver turns 18 or becomes legally emancipated, whichever comes first:

The driver cannot have passengers under age 20
