Lombard firefighter spreads message about texting, driving
LOMBARD – When he walks up to a car wreck, Greg Vazquez, a firefighter and paramedic with the Lombard Fire Department, checks for skid marks.
Often, skid marks of 200 or 300 feet suggest a mature driver in the front seat who lost control of the vehicle who tried, unsuccessfully, to stop.
Short or nonexistent skid marks make Vazquez’s heart sink, because it usually means there’s a young driver in the car who was distracted and didn’t realize he or she was about to crash.
