Car Accidents Archives

Deadly Day For Drunk Driving

Alcohol is a major contributor to fatal car accidents. Roughly one-third of all deadly accidents involve a driver who has had too much to drink. Drunk driving incidents tend to increase during holidays when people celebrate with alcohol. March 17 has become one of the worst days of the year, in terms of the number of alcohol-related traffic accidents it sees. St. Patrick's Day celebrations often involve drinking. They should also include safety measures designed to address the potential for drinking and driving before it can become a problem.

Does Marijuana Use Impair Drivers?

The movement to legalize marijuana in several states has led many to speculate about a potential rise in the number of car accidents caused by impaired driving. Most states have impaired driving statutes that tie some level of the active drug in marijuana, THC, to an automatic finding of impairment. But studies have been inconclusive about a definitive connection between concentrations of THC and impairment. Some even question whether marijuana has any impact on a person's ability to drive a car safely. A recent study supports the notion that marijuana is far less dangerous than alcohol in terms of driving safety.

Defective Auto Cases Might Get More Scrutiny In The Future

Dangerous products make their way to consumers in virtually every industry. Consumer goods, including food, medicine, toys, electronics and motor vehicles, have the potential to cause serious harm when they are not handled properly. Defective cars and trucks kill people every year. The number of defective vehicles on the roads at any given time is staggering. The task of identifying safety defects and responding to them falls to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2014, the NHTSA saw roughly 64 million vehicles recalled. It has a defects team with fewer than 30 employees.

Are You A Good Driver? Do You Want To Find Out?

In various surveys conducted over the years, the percentage of drivers who think they are better than average is roughly 80 percent. Since it is not possible for 80 percent to be better than average, it is clear that many people are not able to accurately judge their driving ability. A phenomenon known as illusory superiority actually makes most people poor judges of their own abilities and virtues in a wide range of endeavors. If you are a bad driver, would the people in your life tell you? How would you know? Could you do more to drive safely and protect yourself and your loved ones? A new opportunity to obtain impartial feedback about your driving ability may be available soon.

What To Do After A Car Accident

After the scene is secure and medical care has been handled, there are steps you can take to improve your situation. A car accident can be a costly and life-altering incident.
