Caddell Reynolds Discusses Roadside Safety on Good Day NWA

July 25th, 2019 Firm News

July is National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month, and with this in mind, Caddell Reynolds wants motorists and pedestrians to be extra vigilant to save lives during the “vacation months,” the time between July through October, which are the most dangerous months the year for traffic fatalities. Attorney Ray Schlegel of Caddell Reynolds recently joined Good Day NWA in July to discuss National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month. The clip of this informative segment appears below.

Driving Safely This Summer

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data indicate that three of the four deadliest holiday weekends occur during the “vacation months” – Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day Weekends.

July and August are the deadliest months to drive, with nearly 116 fatalities occurring each day. And, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, weekends are especially dangerous from 3 to 7 p.m.

How to Avoid Common Accidents

Here are some tips to drive safely this summer:

  • Don’t speed
  • Never leave children/ dogs unattended in your vehicle
  • Don’t drive distracted – Avoid using your phone, putting directions in your GPS while operating your vehicle or checking social media

And, if you are taking a long road trip, here are some tips to help it go smoothly.

  • Make sure you get your car serviced before a road trip
  • Pack an Emergency Roadside Kit (Cell phone charger, flashlight, jumper cables, tire pressure gauge, water, snacks, blankets)
  • Always wear a seatbelt
  • Take breaks – Make sure to stop for food and switch drivers if possible. If you need to, stay at a hotel

I recently had to make to difficult choice to file Bankruptcy due to a life-changing heart condition at the peak of my career. It’s not an easy choice to make when you’ve managed a finance company for a living, and yet it became imperative for my survival and wellness. With horrible regret, I visited Caddell Reynolds for my first consultation. I think in a short while I knew I was on the right track. They say first impression is key, and I was placed at ease with the incredibly empathetic front desk coordinator, Yolanda. She knew I was nervous, and helped me feel welcome and informed. My attorney, was engaged in my journey, understood my pain and immediately addressed my worries with a solution. My attorney truly has treated my like an individual case, caring about my needs and why I was having to file. I had a team of excellent staff that provided a professional experience with a wonderful attitude and work ethic that has made a life changing event bearable. Brooke whom assisted my attorney is amazing and personable very attentive. The little time I had to spend in the office was great. I couldn’t recommend the Caddell Reynolds team enough- the team starts at the door with the incredible Yolanda to greet you when you walk in!
