Make Driving Safe One of Your New Year’s Resolutions

With NYE this weekend, everyone is making a list of their 2017 New Year’s Resolutions. Items ranging from “quit smoking” to “losing that last 10 pounds,”stand on people’s lists but ones that are overlooked are your driving habits. How can you better yourself as a driver? Are you guilty of getting behind the wheel after having a few drinks when you should take a cab? Are you texting while driving? These hazards could have deadly consequences. If you aren’t that concerned about your own well-being, think of the others on the roads that are having their lives impacted by your decisions.

Teen Driver Cell Phone Statistics. 11 teens die every day as a result of texting while driving. According to a AAA poll, 94% of teen drivers acknowledge the dangers of texting and driving, but 35% admitted to doing it anyway. 21% of teen drivers involved in fatal accidents were distracted by their cell phones.

Karen Mertes is living proof of why you should not be distracted while driving. She is a survivor of a near-fatal car accident due to a drunk driver that left her with a TBI. Karen now lives to tell her inspirational story and how she got through a personal injury litigation.

Make a promise to keep not only yourself safe, but those around you.
