Oklahoma City car accident lawyer Dan Davis of The Dan Davis Law Firm said today that drivers have another reason to use caution behind the wheel; a recent study indicates that Oklahoma motorists are faced with some of the poorest road conditions in the country.
A study conducted by national research group TRIP found that Oklahoma City road conditions cost drivers hundreds of dollars in maintenance fees each year, according to News On 6 (“Report: Oklahoma Roads Cost Each Driver More Than $780 A Year,” October 4).
Davis, who represents victims of negligence and families who lost loved ones in accidents, said drivers will need to slow down if the road conditions are bad and keep a safe distance from other vehicles that might be kicking up loose gravel.
“Dangerous road conditions such as uneven or loose pavement also can take a toll on a vehicle. That’s why it’s important for drivers to make sure their cars are in good running order,” said Davis. “The failure to properly maintain a vehicle or adjust accordingly to driving conditions could lead to a serious accident."
I hate to burst bubbles at the prestigious Dan Davis Law Firm, but I don't think this press release was necessary. I'm pretty sure Oklahomans have been aware of our bad roads since forever. In fact, the first word Sequoyah spelled after he crafted the Cherokee alphabet was "pothole."
Seriously, who approved that thing? Either Dan Davis thinks we are really dumb, or maybe it's time we check Dan Davis into the hospital for dementia. They guy's been wearing the same vest for years. Plus, when you feel the need to issue a press release about Oklahoma's god awful roads, there's probably not a lot of time left for you.
On that note, who exactly is Attorney Dan Davis? That's something I've always wondered while juiced up on Sudafed and watching The Price is Right and/or Judge Mathis. Is he the old ex-anchorman turned TV spokesperson from L.A. that we see in the commercials, or is it some behind the scenes guy that looks like Victor E. Wood? Maybe someone can let us know in the comments.
Anyway, I can't wait to see what other press releases the firm issues. I bet next time they'll warn us about severe weather, teen pregnancy or that Oklahoma soil can be bad for your home's foundation. They do seem to have superior command of the obvious.
Update: That didn't take long. Thanks to the OMN, were are a couple of pics of the real Dan Davis. He's not your grandpa's friend from prep school.
