Oklahoma Personal Injury Attorneys
On May 6th, 2010, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry signed into law House Bill 2957, which prohibits public transit drivers from using a cell phone to “write, send, or read” a text message while operating a motor vehicle on their transportation routes. Those who violate the new law will be guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by a $500 fine.
Remember, July 4th weekend is one of the most dangerous holidays for motor vehicle accidents. In 2009, over the 4th of July weekend in Oklahoma, there were 3 deaths and 37 injuries as a result of car and truck accidents. A majority of the accidents were the result of drinking and driving. If you drive drunk, you run the risk of a DUI or DWI or, even worse, you run the risk of taking your own life, the life of your friends and family and the general public. Don't drink and drive this 4th of July.
As experienced Oklahoma personal injury lawyers, we have seen the devastating consequences of negligent and inattentive driving. Despite the inherent difficulties in the enforcement of texting while driving legislation, this is an important issue that needed to be addressed by the Oklahoma legislature.
If you or someone you know has been involved in an auto accident involving a negligent, inattentive driver, please contact the lawyers of Nix Law Group for a free consultation.
