Car accidents caused by the distracted driver have been a sad and constant source of client advocacy for the Chicago Accident Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe. In our thirty years of practice we have witnessed the rapid annual escalation of car accidents and injuries and fatalities due to cellphone use and other forms of distracted driving.
We would like to help end this trend and are advising our viewing public at WCIU, You and Me in the Morning and all are clients, friends and family that April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, a month dedicated to making the public aware of the dangers of distracted driving. Parents trying to educate themselves and their children as to the dangers of distracted driving can visit several webites dedicated to this issue. endDD.org is a non-profit organization founded by a father after his daughter was killed as a pedestrian by a distracted driver and, NODD.org whose goal is to raise the awareness of teen distracted driving. Each organization gives presentations to teens across the country. Readers can visit 60forsafety.org to see request a presentation for your school or organization or to find where or when one is being given in your area.
