Did you see that stop sign?  Were you even paying attention or where you sending a text message?  Well, it used to be if you ran a stop sign, you'd see the flashing red lights.  Now, city officials hope you see the flashing red lights..and then stop at the stop sign.

What is Distracted Driving?

The future of traffic signs is here in Kansas City, at least at three intersections for now.  Flashing stop signs.  Yes, flashing stop signs.  Designed to get the attention of your typical distracted driver, the flashing stop signs employ eight red flashing lights, blinking to get your attention off your cell phone or your book or your CD wallet and back on the road where it should be.

As Kansas City Auto Accident and Injury Lawyers, we hope you're not one of the Kansas City motorists who needs bllinking lights to get you to pay attention.  Distracted Driving causes more accidents and more unnecessary serious injury than any other type of car crash.

The flashing stop signs are at 18th and McGee streets, Swope Parkway and Meyer Boulevard, and 51st and Oak streets.  For those of you who are worried that the flashing stop signs are a gross wasted of money, fear not: the signs are solar powered.

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury in an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, you may be entitled compensation.  Contact the experienced Kansas City Personal Injury Attorneys of Roswold Law Group.  With over 15 years of experience in Auto Injury Accident cases, we can help you.  Call us today and set up a free consultation.
