Accident Firm Announces Wisconsin Distracted Driving Data; Awareness Can Save Lives

Share Article

As a law firm who represents those who have been injured due to the negligent or careless behavior of another, Action Law Offices is keenly aware of the growing problem and risks of distracted driving on Wisconsin Roadways.

In the past several years, cities across Wisconsin have seen an increase in accidents due to the challenging epidemic of distracted driving. Fatalities and serious injuries are on the rise for drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. Action Law Offices is responding by investing in an interactive online element to support awareness and prevention. The firm also speaks at local High Schools in the Metro-Milwaukee area about the devastation distracted driving has caused.

The increase in motor vehicle fatalities and increase in electronic device usage is not by chance. Driving in itself means that one must engage in several operational tasks at once. Attempting to multi-task by texting, entertaining passengers, eating, navigating, video-streaming or grooming is taking driver focus away from the important task of driving. Teen drivers are at greatest risk for a wreck, but distracted driving accidents do not discriminate. Convincing everyone that distracted driving has become an epidemic hasn’t been easy.

The decision was made to invest in interactive online content to help raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. Extensive research was conducted to find the most relevant and meaningful data for visitors to achieve a clear vision of the problem. Wisconsin specific data is also available, including WI Distracted Driving/Inattentive Driving Laws. The webpage isn’t just about statistics and laws, it’s about saving lives. There are some thought-provoking questions such as, “is a text worth risking your life?” Or, “why isn’t distracted driving taken as seriously as drunk driving?”

Take a pledge to be an attentive driver. Keep the conversation going.
