Driving from Greenville, South Carolina to Anderson, South Carolina every day for work, you tend to notice the regular cars you pass, things going on along the interstate, and creative billboards. Trust me, I knew when the Motivational Seminars were coming into town, southbound and northbound.
A billboard that made its point today gave me cause to pull over and take a picture. It reads:
"Stop texting! You almost hit my client. i85lawyers.com."
For all the bad things you hear about lawyer advertising at least this crowd is trying to get its point across to the drivers speeding by at 80mph+ on Interstate 85 (ironically this billboard is right past the 65mph speed limit sign southbound past Exit 35).
More preventative measures need to be taken so that lawyers and insurance companies don’t have to be involved because that means someone is injured or dead. I like my job but I will be successful at whatever, I do. Right now it just so happens to be that I fight for the individual against the faceless insurance company. Maybe with personal injury attorneys turning toward preventative messages and minimizing carelessness on the roadways we are headed for Utopia.
