Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2016
According to a November 10 article published in The Signal, the California Highway Patrol is implementing an Adult Distracted Drivers safety program across the state to help educate the public and prevent collisions caused by distracted driving habits. Los Angeles personal injury attorney Raymond R. Hassanlou notes that, while a driver safety program can help reduce the amount of distracted driving on the road, there are many precautions that individuals can take now to prevent costly and life-threatening distraction-related collisions, such as:
Slowing Down at Intersections - The Los Angeles based personal injury attorney notes that drivers who are either careless or distracted can put themselves and others in danger at busy intersections. Oftentimes, drivers can get into car accidents by speeding through an intersection or by not slowing down when making a turn at a light. Mr. Hassanlou notes that, by simply slowing down while approaching an intersection, drivers can prevent costly car accidents and serious injury to themselves and others, especially if distracted drivers are present. Excess speed and distraction can be a deadly combination!
Checking for Blind Spots - Oftentimes, drivers can get into accidents when switching lanes, especially on a busy highway, notes the Los Angeles accident attorney. By checking their overall surroundings and blind spots before crossing over lanes, drivers can reduce their risk of causing a car accident. Moreover, drivers can also prevent a costly and dangerous accident from occurring by utilizing their turn signals so that others are notified and can act accordingly while a driver switches lanes.
Slowing Down in Construction Zones- As roads are repaired and expanded, many streets and parts of highways are closed off to make way for construction workers. Mr. Hassanlou notes that by slowing down in construction zones, drivers are more likely to avoid collisions and ensure the safety and well-being of construction workers and other pedestrians in the surrounding area.
Mr. Hassanlou concludes by noting that, in addition to the CHP’s implementation of the Adult Distracted Drivers program, individuals can also do their part to drive more carefully and help ensure the safety of themselves and others sharing the road.
