Parsons Police Chief Dale King recently conducted an important study of local wrecks in an effort to curb the rate of deadly car accidents in the small Tennessee town. The two-year long study indicated that Tennessee drivers were at the greatest risk of being involved in a wreck between 10 a.m. and 12 noon, and 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays. In response to these findings, King set up officers where collisions were most likely to occur during those times so that motorists would see the patrol cars and instinctively slow down, possibly preventing a car accident.

PD Efforts Lower Rate of Tennessee Car Accidents
According to the Tennessee car accident study, efforts by the local police department to slow traffic down has cut the rate of deadly collisions throughout the city by a whopping 65%, making motorists city-wide feel safer behind the wheel. “I did this study to find out, to break down statistically where our accidents were happening, what time of the day the accidents were happening, even what day they were happening,” said Chief Dale King. “Yes, if we have an accident of course we respond and help in any way we can, however I wanna catch it before we have the accident.” In light of his findings and the apparent success of the study, Chief King believes that if other cities in Tennessee conducted similar road safety research, it could help save lives across the state and possibly even across the country.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!
After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.
I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
