By now, most people are aware of the dangers of drunk driving. Decades of public health campaigns have educated the public and discouraged driving under the influence. (Remember “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”?)
Distracted driving—anything you do that takes your attention away from the act of driving—is a big problem. Many people get behind the wheel but pay little attention to the road—fiddling with the radio, staring at the GPS, talking on the phone, or (worst of all) texting and surfing the Internet instead.
The past few decades have seen our nation increasingly crack
down on drunk driving. Ohio (and other states) has passed stricter anti-DUI
laws, strengthened punishments for offenders, and increased enforcement—especially
during periods with a high occurrence of drunk driving.
If you experience a work-related injury, you have rights. It’s important to know and understand these rights—so you can make sure that you are treated fairly and get the compensation you need and deserve.
Drunk driving. Distracted driving. Teen driving. We’ve heard for years about how certain activities and demographics are associated with an increased risk of car accidents, injuries, and deaths. If you’ve watched the news or read the newspaper, you’ve surely heard of these things.
