Distracted Driving is a Serious Concern During the Holiday Season Roswell, GA
two cars in a traffic accident

Those who are most likely to suffer from distracted driving are easily tempted. However, when the number of motor vehicle accidents linked to this potentially dangerous habit increase, it is cause for concern. The holiday season is one particular period when a greater number of drivers may exercise less caution on Georgia’s roads due to additional distractions.

There is so much to think about when visiting family and friends for a festive catch-up. With gifts to source and purchase, you will likely spend more time traveling. It is also important to let your hosts know that you are enroute, or update on any delays caused by increased traffic. Trying to plan or execute these actions while driving may cause enough of a distraction to make you miss potential hazards.

Texting & Driving

A quick text to let friends or family know you are on your way is courteous – unless you are driving at the time. Texting takes your attention from the road, which could become a recipe for disaster on roads that are experiencing a hike in traffic because of holiday travel.

It is never a good idea to text while driving. However, more cars on the road increase the risk of that moment of distraction leading to a collision. A driver who is sending a message could hit a pedestrian or another vehicle, potentially causing injuries or fatalities.

Calling Family, Friends or Businesses

It is good manners to provide your hosts with an estimated time of arrival. Your hosts would rather you arrive safe, rather than getting another call to say you were involved in an accident. It is a better idea to set expectations of a planned ETA before leaving, emphasizing that delays may occur if traffic conditions are heavy.

If you are shopping for gifts for Christmas, calling the business or checking their website is a good way to get ahead of the game. These are tasks that are best completed from the comfort of your home. No discount is worth causing an accident, getting injured or causing injuries to others.

Stay safe this holiday season by avoiding distracted driving. If you have been injured in a collision and believe the other driver was at-fault, contact Rowsey & Stelter Attorneys at Law for a consultation in Georgia.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
