Ottawa Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. For everyone’s safety, the OPP-Ontario Ontario Provincial Police are about to begin a distracted driving campaign next week. This is not the first distracted driving campaign in our area. Ontario Police often target distracted drivers and you wouldn’t believe the number of infractions that occur in just a one weekend blitz campaign. I support these campaigns fully. As a Ottawa personal injury lawyer, I read police accident reports daily and the number of Ottawa area accidents caused by distracted driving is astonishing. What bothers me most, is that these accidents may have been avoidable. I’m not saying I don’t understand how it happens. I too have children that suddenly start fighting in the back seat and before I know it, my attention has been diverted from the road to them. It happens. That is why reminders such as this post are so useful. My goal is to have us all tuck this post in the back of our minds and hopefully the next time a situation arises when we are driving, we will remember.
Ontario Police are not only focusing on distracted drivers, they are also asking drivers to leave any handheld devices out of reach while driving. Ontario Police are also asking that passengers speak to their drivers if they are driving distracted. While this may be uncomfortable, it is life saving !
As I mentioned earlier, distracted is not limited to texting or talking on the phone. Although texting is the most dangerous, there are other obstacles that can divert your attention while driving. The most common are:
watching other drivers,
focussing on kids in the backseat ,
looking in the mirror,
or personal grooming.
Please tuck this information away and hopefully we can all work together to reduce Ottawa accidents and keep our roads safe. Drive safely and have a great day.

A terrible Killaloe accident has left a mother and one of her children in a Ottawa hospital with serious injuries. Kristen Birney was driving a minivan with her four children inside the vehicle when it was hit by another vehicle turning from Opeongo Road onto Letter Kenny Road at about 5 o’clock last night. The OPP are looking to press careless driving charges against the 67 year old driver that struck the minivan. The result was that Kristen and her 3 year old toddler were airlifted to the Ottawa Hospital Civic campus in critical condition. The OPP are continuing in their investigation. If you have any information that could help police, please contact the OPP. My thoughts are with Kristen, her young child and their family at this difficult time and I’m wishing them both FULL recoveries. Thankfully they are in excellent hands at the Ottawa Hospital.

Ottawa Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates. The mild weather and last week’s storm have officially closed down the Canal for the year. The Rideau Canal Skateway opened on January 18th for 42 days and hosted close to 850 000 visits to the canal. We are so lucky to have largest skating rink in the world in our very own backyard.
Even though the canal ice may seem safe and may be as much seem thick, there is still a danger of falling through the ice and drowning.Please stay off the ice as it is no longer safe to skate on. It is estimated that close to 8,000 people die every year around the world from drowning.
Enjoy the rest of the winter and be safe out there.

Ottawa Valentine’s day, Injury Lawyers David Hollingsworth and Associates
There are far too many snowmobile accidents each year. A tragic snowmobile accident took another life: the life of a 24 year old man in Val des Monts yesterday. My thoughts go out to his family and friends and I am truly sorry for their loss. I have many clients who have injured themselves while snowmobiling . A snowmobile is considered a motor vehicle and yes, Ontario accident benefits apply to snowmobile accidents. So the good news is there is support and compensation for people who suffer injuries in snowmobile accidents. The bad news is, there seem to be a lot of snowmobile accidents in our region and some of them are sadly, fatal. Please ride safely…
Transport Canada has prepared an amazing site full of interesting information that relates to road and snowmobile safety. For example, did you know that there are over 700,000 registered snowmobiles and more than 161,000 km of snowmobile trails in Canada? Snowmobiling can be safe and enjoyable. As long as drivers are cautious and follow safety rules, there is no reason not to get out and enjoy a fantastic sport.
The Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations or CCSO highlighted that between the years of 1994 and 1999, when promoting safety and snowmobiling became a focus, snowmobile accident fatalities dropped by 2% – from 96 to 94 deaths;however the number of snowmobile drivers increased by 40%. This goes to show that more and more people can ride safely ,when safety is a focus.
Snowmobiling safety tips:
- Tell someone where you plan to go and when you plan to get there.
- Ensure that your snowmobile is tuned up.
- Dress properly to protect yourself and avoid hypothermia, especially in children.
- Always have a first aid and survival kit available.
- Ride at your own speed.
- Try to use snowmobile trails whenever possible.
- Remain on the right side of all roads, paths and trails.
- If you don’t know the area, slow down and drive cautiously.
- Be careful crossing roads and train tracks.
- At night, drive with headlights and slow down.
- Know the ice conditions and if you are unsure, do not cross.
- Always wear flotation-type clothing.
- Always be on the look out for wildlife.
It’s impossible to completely avoid all accidents but please, let’s try. Snowmobiling does not need to be a dangerous sport. Be safe and ride as safely as possible. Enjoy !
