Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 29, 2012
Road safety is important for everyone, especially motorcyclists, and it is an important issue for Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys. Approximately one quarter of all accidents across the USA involve a distracted driver. That equates to 1.3 million accidents in the last calendar year alone and texting and driving makes up a large portion of these distracted driving incidents. Driving at 55mph, a vehicle travels the equivalent of the length of a football field in the time it takes to only glance at a handheld device. This stat supports the fact that drivers using a handheld device are four times more likely to be involved in serious motor vehicle accidents. Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys will be at the Washington, DC Progressive International Motorcycle Show, spreading the word on the dangers of operating a handheld device while operating a vehicle. In support of the campaign, Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys will be distributing complimentary “Keep Me Alive Don’t Text and Drive” stickers in an effort to spread the word and keep our roads free from distracted driving—urging motorists to put down their handheld devices when behind the wheel of any vehicle.
Hopefully this campaign will help make drivers think twice about distracted driving and maybe even convince those who still text while driving to stop. Common sense—which still doesn’t seem so common, new laws and campaigns like "Keep Me Alive Don't Text And Drive," should help reduce the risk of injury on the road. Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys supports these laws and the common sense approach most vehicle operators take when getting behind the wheel. "Keep Me Alive Don't Text And Drive" stickers are available to anyone interested in showing support for this extremely important safety initiative by ordering online at http://www.killabikergotojail.com, by calling 1-800-424-5377 or stop by the booth during the show.
The Progressive International Motorcycle Show, the largest motorcycle show in the industry, boasts a bevy of activities for the whole family to enjoy; including exhibits from Harley-Davidson, Ducati, Honda, BMW and other manufacturers, takes place Friday, January 4, 2013, 3:00PM - Sunday, January 6, 2013, 5:00PM at the Washington Convention Center, Mount Vernon Place, Washington, DC 20001
