Attorney Doug Horn likes to say that he has had both a front row seat and a birdâ€™s eye view of the distracted driving epidemic that is gripping Americaâ€™s roadways. His perspective comes from over 25 years of providing legal representation to people who have been seriously injured or killed in motor vehicle accidents.
Earlier this week, on KSHB, Hornâ€™s distracted driving prevention program was profiled by Reporter Cynthia Newsome. Unlike traditional efforts to reduce distracted driving, Hornâ€™s program encourages motorists to protect themselves against distracted drivers by driving alert, buckled, cautious, and defensive. Horn gave further explanation, â€œby urging drivers to adopt safe driving habits, we not only hope to reduce accidents, but also help elevate the driving cultureâ€.
Horn has been involved in efforts to advance driver safety since 2009. He has developed a driving safety communications platform called â€œDrive By Exampleâ€. Currently, he is in the process of looking for driving safety partnerships to help reverse a significant increase in traffic fatality trends in Missouri. Along with distracted driving prevention, Horn also has programs designed for teen driver protection and safe driving programs for corporations and businesses.
