Motor vehicle collisions can be terrifying, even when nobody is injured in the collision. Even minor auto accidents can result in insurance issues, stress and property damage. Someone who is hit by another driver may have mental trauma following the crash, and they could be hesitant to get behind the wheel in the future. It can be startling to be struck by another vehicle, whether a driver pulls out suddenly or rear-ends a vehicle. Of course, auto accidents can also leave victims with a wide range of injuries that disrupt their life in an assortment of ways. For someone who has never been in a traffic crash before, these challenges can be especially tough.

It does not matter who one is, what one's profession is or whether or not one is on duty; everyone on the road is vulnerable to injury or death due to a car accident. On Monday evening last week, a law enforcement officer in Fresno, California, lost his life while driving home from work in his personal automobile when another vehicle going the wrong way on Highway 180 struck his in a head-on collision. The driver of the other vehicle also died of injuries sustained in the crash despite the fact that both were wearing seatbelts at the time.
Drivers lose their focus on the road because of many different distractions, from passengers in the car bothering them to something happening outside of the vehicle. However, technology has introduced many new ways for drivers to take their eyes and ears off of the road. Various apps tend to distract drivers, and people may even try to play a game on their phone or post something to the internet while driving. Moreover, video chat can be especially dangerous, and this has caused many drivers to become distracted when they should have been paying attention to the road.
