Fatigued driving is a big problem but can be prevented

Fatigued driving is a serious problem in this country, but it is one that could easily be prevented if nobody got behind the wheel without getting enough sleep first. It is imperative that anyone who is starting to notice signs of fatigue get off the road and rest before continuing their journey. If they fail to do this, there is a chance that they might cause a catastrophic or fatal crash.

Don't sabotage your own accident claim

If you've been injured in a car accident while driving, riding as a passenger, biking or walking, you may have significant medical expenses and be off work for a while. It's perfectly normal to expect the culpable party to pay for you losses -- but you can end up sabotaging your own claim if you aren't careful.

Blunt force trauma can lead to internal injuries in car wrecks

The occupants of a vehicle are likely going to suffer injuries if they are involved in a serious crash. The likelihood of this occurring is greater in some cases than others. One of the primary factors that can lead to these injuries is failing to wear a seat belt. Even though you do have a risk of the seat belt causing a blunt force injury, the risk of death or catastrophic injury is much higher without one on.

Staying safe on the road this Halloween

If you're still a little anxious about driving because you've recently been involved in a car crash, you likely aren't looking forward to driving on Halloween night. It can be a particularly dangerous time because of the number of cars as well as young pedestrians out and about.

Florida laws aim to stop dangerous texting and driving

A new texting and driving law went into effect in Florida over the summer. Drivers need to ensure that they know precisely what is allowed now. One of the significant points to recognize is that the new law makes using a cellphone while you drive a primary offense. This means that officers can pull vehicles over based on seeing this happen.

How safety features can reduce your risk of a crash

If you've been involved in a car accident, one of the things at the top of your to-do list may be to buy a new car. Whether yours was irreparably damaged or you simply feel that you need a safer vehicle, you'll find a lot of safety features available on newer model vehicles. Some are standard. Others are part of a package that you will need to pay a little extra for.
