Georgia Distracted Driving Conference to Take Place on September 14

By Grant Law Office on August 30, 2013

According to a report by the Department of Transportation (DOT), in 2009, around 5,400 people nationwide were killed in distracted driving accidents and thousands more suffered injuries. These alarming statistics have pushed many organizations and agencies, both public and private, to engage with the public and inform them of the dangers of distracted driving.

The National Organization of Youth Safety (NOYS) is getting ready for the Georgia Distracted Driving Conference, which will take place at The Classic in Athens, Georgia on September 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gathering will feature informational presentations on the dangers of distracted driving as well as discussions on how to spread awareness of distracted driving and encourage safe driving habits among the youth.

With the advent of portable digital devices, distracted driving is now more of an issue than ever. A significant portion of auto accidents nowadays are caused by texting-while-driving or other distractions related to mobile devices. Teens, being as attached as they are to their smart phones, are especially susceptible to dangerous distracted driving behaviors. It is important for organizations like NOYS to persist with their educational campaigns so tragedies on the road can be averted and lives can be saved.

Driving is a privilege, not a right, and every driver is responsible for the safety of all others on the road. If a driver decides to act recklessly and engage in distracted driving, he or she can be held liable for any damages he or she may cause. The Atlanta distracted driving attorneys at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. have spent many years helping accident victims get the settlements they need to pay for the costs of extensive medical treatment, auto repairs and replacements, and more.
