  • Which Star Wars Character Are You?

    Whether you’re a lawyer from Salt Lake City, Utah or a construction worker from the East Coast, we all face choices that determine our character. Have you ever wondered what type of person you’d be in the Star Wars universe?

    We all have that friend who occasionally causes an auto accident through sheer incompetence and we just know he or she would become a Sith Lord if he was given the chance. Who would you be? Are you Han Solo who tries with all his might to hide the fact that he’s a good person or are you Darth Sidious, the very definition of evil incarnate?

  • How to Avoiding Texting and Driving Like a Star Wars Character

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, Star Wars characters began the adventure of a lifetime. With each day came space chases and explosions as the fight between the light and the dark side ensued.

    One thing we never saw in the Star Wars universe was someone pulling their phone out as they were putting their ship into hyper drive. Characters through the galaxy knew that a space accident was exponentially worse than any auto accident cases throughout Salt Lake City.

    Finding a lawyer in your city would be a million times easier for you than it is for them. But if you can perfect how to say no to texting and driving like a member of their universe, you’ll never have to make that unfortunate phone call.

  • Common Injuries Associated With Texting and Driving

    The cost of texting while driving can literally be life shattering. It can shatter your bones, your neck, or sometimes your soul if you lost a loved one because you were texting and driving.

    Everything from broken bones to internal bleeding can occur and alter your life forever just because you wanted to write “LOL” to your friends in Salt Lake City. Is that really worth it? And if you do get a severe injury from texting while driving, any lawyer will be able to tell you that you won’t get any compensation due to your negligence.

    Or maybe you come out of a texting and driving auto accident unscathed, but your loved one who was in the passenger seat is now forever paralyzed. Broken bones heal quickly, but it’ll take more than a few weeks bed rest to deal with the guilt of hurting someone you love.

  • Podracing, Though Dangerous, Is Safer Than Texting and Driving

    Podracing is a very popular event in many parts of the Star Wars Universe. You may recall the fast-paced racing event in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. About podracing, Master Qui-gon Jinn remarked that it was very fast and very dangerous. It’s likely that your lawyer would say something similar about texting and driving.

    Texting and driving is dangerous because it is likely to lead you to a fatal auto accident. Similarly, crashing a podracer could be equally fatal. However, your lawyer could argue that podracing isn’t nearly as dangerous as texting and driving is.

    Too Many People Text and Drive

    One of the main differences between podracing and texting and driving is the number of people who participate in the activity. On heavily populated planets like Coruscant, podracing is banned. It is only practiced on remote worlds like Tatooine. Texting and driving, on the other hand, happens in all areas of the world, from big cities like Salt Lake City to small rural towns. More people are in danger of texting and driving than they are of dying in a podracing auto accident.

    Texting While Driving Is Against the Law

    Podrace organizing committees from Malastare to Theron labor tirelessly to make sure that the races are safe for spectators. On the other hand, there are no texting and driving committees to keep others safe. Ask your lawyer and she’ll tell you that it’s because texting and driving is illegal — and for good reason. You’d think people would want to avoid a deadly auto accident, but for some reason they are unwilling to put their phones away.

    Stay Focused 100 Percent of the Time

    Podracer pilots are extremely focused while racing. They have to be. Imagine driving through treacherous terrain at 588 mph. That’s what professional podracers have to face every day. You wouldn’t even think about texting in those conditions — your lawyer wouldn’t even permit you to drive in those conditions. However, did you know you could cause a fatal auto accident at a mere 35 mph? No matter what speed you’re going, if you’re behind the wheel, pay 100 percent of your attention to the road.

  • Texting, Comic Con and Your Storm Trooper Cosplay

    The master, the myth and the legend himself, Mark Hamill (other wise known as Luke Skywalker), will be at your local comic con for one day only. As someone often referred to as “a little short to be a Storm Trooper,” you’ve dressed up in your best cosplay costume anyway.

    You’re preparing to take on the Salt Lake City streets, risking life and limb to see your idol. However, you may be putting yourself and those around you in danger of an auto accident. Take the proper safety precautions in order to avoid the call to your lawyer, and may the force be with you.

    Safe Travels

    You want to get into character before even leaving your home which means that you woke up at dawn to piece together your authentic Storm Trooper costume. Everyone knows that finding parking downtown is never easy, but you’ve chosen to forgo public transportation in order to keep your costume in pristine condition.

    As you cruise down the street, bombarded with comic con notifications and text messages from your friends, you’re going to be tempted to look at your phone. Avoid all auto accident cases by simply putting it out of reach until you’ve safely secured your parking spot. It’s bad enough that your costume restricts your movement — don’t make it worse by getting a lawyer involved.

    Beware of the Helmet

    No matter what Episode you choose to watch, Storm Troopers are notorious for their awful aim. Now that you’ve got a helmet of your own you can see why. The eye holes make it almost impossible to see.

    The risk of choosing to wear your helmet while driving or before entering the convention center makes you an accident looking for a place to happen. If even one person is texting while behind the wheel, your obscured peripherals will guarantee a phone call to your auto accident lawyer.

    Let your geek flag fly, get your Star Wars autographs and do it all safely by thinking before you act.

  • Texting While Driving: It’s a Trap

    When the rebel fleet in “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” jumped out of light speed just outside the shields of second Death Star, Admiral Ackbar realized two important things: the Death Star’s shields were still up and the weapon systems on the station were operational… and it’s a trap.

    Likewise, texting and driving is a dangerous thing to do in Salt Lake City — or any city for that matter. It could even lead to a fatal auto accident. So when you’re tempted to pick up that phone while behind the wheel, your lawyer will echo that statement made by Ackbar: it’s a trap. Don’t fall for it.

    Show Self-Control

    While the rebel fleet engaged with the Imperial fleet, Luke Skywalker stood aboard the Death Star, held captive by the emperor and Darth Vader. They tried to convince Luke to join the dark side, but he refused. Instead, Luke took up his lightsaber and attacked. Against all odds, Luke was victorious. He stayed true to the light.

    That buzzing phone in your pocket as you drive is like the emperor and Darth Vader trying to draw you away to the dark side. The moment you take your attention off the road because of the text, you are letting yourself turn to the dark side where you may suffer a fatal auto accident. Your lawyer will do his best, but even he can’t recover you from the dark side. Be like Luke and stay true to the light.

    Fight for the Light Side

    Luke had to fight to remain true. He almost died as the emperor unleashed many volts of Sith lightning on young Skywalker. However, even in the immense pain, Luke refused to turn.

    As a driver tempted to text, your struggle is never physically painful — unless you give in. No, your struggle is internal, but that doesn’t mean your struggle may not be emotionally painful. You might be expecting a text from a loved one. Or maybe you have an important text from your auto accident lawyer. All of these can wait. No matter how hard it is to resist the text, you can do it.

  • Stay on Target: Driving Advice From an X-wing Pilot

    In the Rebel Alliance, we believe in two things: toppling the Galactic Empire and safety. Unfortunately, too many of our fighter pilots choose distracting technology over their visual scanners — their eyeballs. What these pilots don’t understand is Imperial Tie fighters don’t always show up on radar. The best pilots understand that it’s important to stay focus, or in other words: stay on target.

    Whether you’re an x-wing pilot, a lawyer or a driver in Provo, Utah, it’s important to rid yourself of pesky distractions like texting. Doing so will help prevent and auto accident.

    May the force be with you.

  • The Most Dangerous Vehicles in Star Wars

    In one of the final scenes of “Star Wars: Rogue One,” Darth Vader drops out of light speed right in front of the fleeing rebel armada. Perhaps there was space fog or maybe Vader was texting while driving, but whatever the reason (we’ll leave it up to his lawyer) he caused one heck of a space auto accident. The pileup killed many rebel fighters — Admiral Ackbar likely had friends or relatives among the injured. Too bad he wasn’t there to warn, “It’s a trap!”

    If you’re thinking of becoming a space lawyer, you may want to know about which vehicles in the Star Wars universe are more likely to get into an auto accident or space motorcycle accident. Believe it or not, space motorcycles do exist (Rey drives a Popsicle speeder).

    The TIE Fighter

    To say nothing of their huge design flaws (who makes a ship shaped like an “H”?), these imperial fighters are constantly clipping the sides of Death Stars and cliff sides. You may not want to purchase a TIE fighter for your 16 year old daughter.

    Death Star

    Only two Death Stars were ever made, so if you find yourself in possession of this rare vehicle, it’s probably a good idea to sell it or put it in a museum. These vehicles have the power to destroy planets and that’s without their horrible emissions rating. They aren’t environmentally friendly and are a nightmare for a lawyer.

    AT-AT (Imperial Walker)

    Referred to by space vehicle manufacturers as the “Iron Camel,” the imperial walker creates a crater with each step, causing millions of dollars in damage to city streets and buildings. Also, all you have to do is trip them to make them explode, so seatbelts aren’t going to be of much help in these behemoths.

    Speeder Bike

    How many storm troopers are going to get flung off of these death machines before we realize that they are way too dangerous? They go from 0-150 mph in like one second. Needless to say, don’t drive these things through the places like Provo canyon or through any forest.

  • The Dark Side of Texting

    Texting while driving is risky. On one hand your girlfriend will hate you if you don’t send her cute messages. But on the other hand, your girlfriend would much rather you not wreck her pretty Beetle. Although drivers think that messaging on the road is fun, an auto accident is not fun at all. Believing that you are too capable to cause an accident can lead you down a dark path toward injury and pain as it did Kylo Ren.

    Pride Leads to the Dark Side

    When Kylo Ren faced Rey in a duel, his pride overcame him. He felt that his experience with the force would make her easy to beat. With Kylo Ren’s destructive pride, you reassure yourself you are such a good driver that you don’t need to keep your eyes on the road. If you survive an auto accident and manage not to hurt anyone, you won’t have to call your lawyer. On the other hand, your girlfriend will never speak to you again for wrecking her cute beetle.

    Trust Your Senses… Or Not

    Rey would not dare text while being chased on the Millenium Falcon by TIE fighters. Just as she was dependent upon her senses to avoid danger, you also should be using your own senses for driving. When your sight isn’t where it should be, the force won’t be there to save you, and your lawyer can only do so much. With pride like Kylo Ren, you may convince yourself that texting is worth it but let the force be your guide on this one.

    Awareness Ensures Survival

    Whether you’re on the road in Farmington or fighting a Sith Lord, it is much better to be aware of your surroundings to increase your chance of survival. Even if you’re happier focusing on a glowing screen than a dull road, a wreck could change that very quickly. Unless you’d feel happier hospitalized after an auto accident. After all, you’d be messaging friends and spending plenty of time talking to your lawyer.

    Pride Leads to Texting, Texting Leads To Pain

    Just remember that the guilty sting you feel when you text while driving won’t compare to the way you’ll feel if you are in an auto accident. You’ll wish that your lawyer could mind wipe the mind of the owners of the other vehicle with a Jedi mind trick. In this occasion, you will be the driver they are looking for. In order to prevent an occurrence, don’t subscribe to Kylo Ren’s destructive pride while driving. Texting and driving will recklessly bring you to the dark side of life very quickly.
