Texting: A danger that has to be eliminated

As someone who has recently been in a car accident, you've gotten hurt and become exhausted with medical appointments, repair shop quotes and other changes to your life. You're angry at the other driver, because they only needed to put down their phone to prevent this crash.

Texting and driving is a serious problem in the United States, but not everyone recognizes how dangerous their actions are. As a result, you're struggling through physical therapy and will take months to get back to work. You want to hold the driver liable.

Distracted driving in Chicago can kill

With the warmer months of the year here, it is important for all Chicagoland drivers to remember that this means an uptick in the number of people moving about in the city. Not only will there more vehicles on the roads to visit the city's amazing attractions from the beaches to the summer night concerts, there will also be more pedestrians and bicyclists.

For anyone who has ever driven here, you know that the roads are often packed with tight traffic. Taking your eyes off the roads for even a second could lead to a fatal error. Whether you are heading out on Lower Wacker Drive, Lake Shore Drive, or the expressway, you need to focus on driving.

Drivers can focus better with these tips on driving safely

Distracted driving is a major problem among people today. The kinds of things that distract people have changed over time, but they've started to grow in number. Take, for example, cellphones. Initially, they only distracted individuals through sound and talk. Today, cellphones are smarter. They cause visual, physical and cognitive distractions.

Visual, physical and cognitive distractions combined make a driver dangerous. For instance, if someone is texting, he or she is physically removing his or her hands from the wheel, looking away from the road and thinking about something other than driving. That combination can be deadly.
