Laura Bush’s New Book: More Attention to Distracted Driving | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

Posted by Salvatore J. Zambri, founding partner

As I have frequently blogged before, the dangers of distracted driving cannot be under-estimated, especially for teen drivers.  In her new book “Spoken from the Heart,” former First lady Laura Bush describes her deadly teen auto accident in which a high school friend was killed.  According to Mrs. Bush, she and her friend were chatting when she ran a stop sign that caused the crash. She suffered years of guilt as a result of the accident.  Mrs. Bush brings one more celebrity voice to the devastating life-long effects that a deadly accident can have on young drivers.

Distracted driving, whether caused by other passengers in the vehicle, eating while driving, playing with the radio, talking on the cell phone, texting, or any number of other reasons for not paying 100% attention to driving, is a serious and very real danger for all drivers, as I have emphasized repeatedly in my talks with high school groups. As posted in a previous entry on this blog, Motor Vehicle Accidents Continue to Be the Leading Death Cause for Teen Drivers.  Please be careful on the road and don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to learn more about my presentations concerning distracted driving.
