New Jersey’s Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day

Posted on Friday, January 4th, 2013    

It’s an uncomfortable truth that, though the word “accident” is used to describe almost any vehicle collision, most collisions are, in fact, due to a driver’s negligence. As such, many collisions could have been prevented with more diligent driving and are therefore not really accidents at all.

The truth of this view is demonstrated by the success of New Jersey’s Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day. Through Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day, New Jersey’s Department of Law and Public Safety asks that, for one day, New Jersey drivers “drive as though [their] life depends on it” so that each year there will be a day during which no fatalities occur on our roads. Statistically, fatalities do lessen on Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day.

Until every driver drives as though every day in New Jersey is Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day, the personal injury and wrongful death attorney of the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, are on hand to help injured people and the families of wrongful death collisions across New Jersey.
