Cranston, RI (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
Local Rhode Island personal injury attorney Mike Bottaro is set to appear on The Rhode Show to raise awareness for Distracted Driving Awareness Month and to discuss the dangers of texting and driving. The episode will air on Tuesday April 9, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. on CBS.
The interview will include a discussion of the latest texting and driving survey results from AT&T, which shows an increase in the number of adults and teens admitting to texting while driving. Attorney Bottaro will also discuss recent case studies that have compared texting and driving very closely to drunk driving.
Although both Rhode Island and Massachusetts now have laws prohibiting texting and driving, it remains a serious issue. As a local Rhode Island car accident lawyer, Mike Bottaro has experienced first hand how texting and driving and other forms of distracted driving can endanger lives.
“The amount of drivers openly admitting to texting while driving is astonishing,” said Mike Bottaro, founder of The Bottaro Law Firm. “It is great to see some states implementing cell phone bans for drivers. We need to continue to raise awareness for this topic and help make our roadways safer for all motorists.”
Attorney Mike Bottaro has previously appeared on The Rhode Show to discuss topics such as motorcycle safety, travel safety, school bus safety for students and other personal injury prevention topics. He is a strong advocate for educating Rhode Island’s motorists on the dangers of distracted driving and keeping Rhode Island’s communities safe.
