When you’re driving and trying to get to work, home, or a vacation destination, the last thing you want to do is stop if you don’t have to. You’re focused on getting to your destination as quickly as possible, and that means you may try to push through potentially dangerous situations.

The next time you experience the following, it’s important to pull over to a safe location rather than continuing to drive:

  1. Falling asleep behind the wheel—Drowsy driving is a dangerous epidemic in the U.S. Around 35% of Americans report being sleep deprived, and that can affect their ability to drive safely. If you’re struggling to stay focused and awake, pull over to a safe location to take a quick nap.
  2. Driving in torrential rain/snow or heavy fog—Modern vehicles are equipped to handle inclement weather, but not extreme weather. When rain or snow are absolutely pouring down, your wipers won’t be able to keep up and you may not be able to see in front of you. Extreme fog can also reduce visibility to just a few feet in front of your vehicle.
  3. Needing to make an important phone call—You should never use a handheld phone while driving. But even using a hands-free function to make or take a call can be dangerously distracting, especially when it’s an important call. For these calls, always pull over to a safe location first.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville car accident lawyers know that not all drivers follow these safety guidelines. When they don’t, they put themselves and others at risk. If you are injured by a negligent driver, we’re here to help. Contact us today for a free consultation.

    I highly recommend Ponce Law for injury claims. I was in and auto accident in Dec 2021, and a friend recommended this firm. They worked hard to get the best settlement possible for me. Natalie (atty) and Taylor (paralegal) are terrific. Again, highly recommended!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
