Personal Injury Lawyer for Richmond Hill, Markham, Vaughan Ontario Discusses Distracted Driving Car Accidents
Serious car accidents and injuries occur in Ontario as a result of distracted driving. Although Ontario has implemented legislation to combat the risks of distracted driving, many drivers in Ontario continue to operate their vehicle while distracted. Using hand-held devices, cell phones, or text messaging remain common practices on Ontario roads.
Sadly, it is often young drivers that are involved in Ontario car accidents as a result of texting or reading messages while driving. Some of the most serious car accidents I have seen as an Ontario personal injury lawyer involve instances of distracted driving. Ontario distracted driving accidents are often high speed collisions, because the driver is not paying attention to the traffic conditions and, therefore, fails to take any evasive action to avoid the collision, such as braking or swerving. As a result, these Ontario car accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and sometimes result in fatal car accidents.
The video posted below is a sad reminder of the dangers of texting while driving. Many young drivers continue to text while driving. Please remind your friends NOT to text while driving.
