Drunk driving crashes claim many lives each day

Drunk drivers are a huge problem in this country. When a person opts to drink and drive, they are making a decision that could impact the life of an innocent victim. This doesn't stop them from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, so they try to make it to their destination without any problems. While it is possible for other drivers to avoid them sometimes, things don't always work that way.

Common causes for car crashes to remember

Motor vehicle crashes can lead to catastrophic injuries for the victims. Because of this, all drivers must take the time to drive safely each time they get out on the roads. Taking the time to brush up on some of the more common accident types might help drivers to avoid getting into those types of wrecks.

Many car crash claims are settled without a trial

When you're struck by another driver, you might suffer serious injuries. This can result in the need for medical care and may lead to other life changes for you. One option that you have if this occurs is to seek compensation for the financial damages that you've suffered by filing a personal injury claim in the civil court system.

More than cellphones distract drivers in this country

Distracted driving is a huge issue in this country. Whether you're driving on the busy city streets or heading out toward the countryside, you need to ensure that you're giving your full attention to driving. Unfortunately, your ability to remain safe while you're on the roads also depends on others who are on the roads.

Does crash-avoidance technology really reduce accident rates?

There have been a lot of improvements that have been made when it comes to vehicle safety technology in recent years. Even still, data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that car crash fatalities remain a serious concern. The federal agency's statistics show that nearly 40,000 Americans die in auto accidents each year. Many of these crashes aren't attributed to equipment malfunction, but instead driver error. NHTSA data shows that 10% of all automobile deaths can be blamed on distracted drivers.

Important safety tips for driving in a traffic jam

Being stuck in a traffic jam isn't a pleasant experience, but it is one that you should plan for before you're involved in one. On average, a person in the United States spends about 54 hours extra in their vehicles each year because of congestion on the road. If you're in this position, remember that you can take steps to help keep yourself safe.

Reduce or eliminate distractions while driving

Drivers need to be able to devote their full attention to the roadway, so there isn't any room for distractions of any type. While many people automatically associate cellphones with distracted driving, there are many things that can cause a driver's focus to divert from the roadway.

Americans are apprehensive about computers driving cars

Vehicles that operate on New York roads and others throughout the country have limited autonomous capabilities. However, according to AAA, it is unlikely that there will be a truly self-driving car on the road for many years or decades to come. This is partially because Americans have many questions about how safe such a vehicle would be. A survey conducted by AAA revealed that only 12% of respondents would feel comfortable riding in a car that drove itself.

Class bias one reason why drivers may not yield to pedestrians

The Journal of Transport & Health has published the results of a study analyzing the various factors that can influence a driver's decision to yield or not yield to a pedestrian. Drivers in New York should know that 6,283 pedestrians were killed in the U.S. in 2018.
