When you, or a loved one, are in a serious car accident, and suffer a traumatic brain injury (or TBI), the impact of this injury can devastate your life, both in the short term and long term. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a “TBI is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.” Further, it cites that the “leading causes of TBI’s include falls among older adults, being struck by or against an object, assaults, and motor vehicle crashes.”
The Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey (BIANJ), whose mission is to “support and advocate for individuals affected by brain injury and raise public awareness through education and prevention,” is one of many organizations throughout the state committed to driving safety. Per its website, “Our goal is to educate people about the dangers of distracted driving and to remind every driver to put the phone down, keep their eyes and minds on the road and just drive!” It proudly supports the #justdrive initiative, and advises the public about the dangers of the three types of distracted driving and how to avoid them:
- Visual -> keep your eyes on the road
- Manual -> Keep your phone out of reach
- Cognitive -> Avoid phone calls, even hands-free. Stay focused on the road
