Weekend Forecast Calls for Fun – and Safe Driving

Categories: Accident Victims

Friday rolls around and everyone seems to be in a hurry. Whether you are rushing to get home, rushing to the store, or rushing out on a big date, the Law Offices of David Van Sant have one request: Please Slow Down!

“There is nowhere that you have to be that is so important it is worth risking your life, the life of your passengers, or other motorists and pedestrians on the road,” says David Van Sant, an Alpharetta personal injury attorney.

Friday nights are big nights for minor accidents, Van Sant says. He says Georgia DOT statistics indicate that minor fender benders are a big cause of traffic snarls on Friday evenings, as people head home, hit the store on their way, or rush to fit several errands into a short window of time.

“I’d like to suggest that drivers do their part to curtail these Friday afternoon fender benders by doing errands on the other days of the week. If everyone had Friday night ‘free’ to focus on getting home safely, there’d be a lot fewer traffic tie-ups and accidents on the roads,” Van Sant says.

As a personal injury attorney, David Van Sant works with accident victims. Most have been injured in a crash with a car, truck, or motorcycle, and Van Sant’s clients typically are not at fault.

“When you are hurt due to no fault of your own, you need a competent attorney who can take the bull by the horns and go to work on your behalf,” Van Sant says.
