The risk of a collision during nighttime hours

Motor vehicle collisions have many different causes and people frequently realize that poor weather conditions such as snow or heavy rain, the use of alcohol, distractions including smartphones and turning the radio station as well as driver fatigue can all result in a motor vehicle collision. However, there are other potential dangers to be aware of, such as the risks you may face on the road at certain times of the day. Aside from rush hour traffic, there are other times when driving can be difficult, such as during the nighttime hours.

Smartphones and motor vehicle crashes

There are all sorts of risk factors when it comes to motor vehicle crashes, some of which are out of a driver's control (such as inclement weather). However, other factors are solely a result of a driver's carelessness, such as the consumption of drugs or alcohol behind the wheel. In the digital era, many people are addicted to their smartphones, another major problem on roadways across the country. There are a number of reasons why people use their phones and this behavior is especially dangerous on the road.

Different ways a crash could impact your career

There are many different consequences associated with motor vehicle collisions and many have been examined on this blog. From physical pain and financial hurdles to fatalities, auto collisions are very devastating. However, it is important to keep in mind that there are other ways in which your life may be shattered following a wreck. For example, a motor vehicle accident may have a negative impact on your career in a number of ways.

Extreme heat and pedestrian accidents

Pedestrians may find themselves in a traffic incident during any time of year, but there are certain instances where a pedestrian accident may be especially likely. During the winter, for example, a pedestrian may slip on ice or a driver may lose control after driving over a patch of ice and veer off of the road. The summer can also be a dangerous time for pedestrians and in this post, we will discuss some concerns related to summer weather and pedestrian accidents.

Reckless drivers and children playing near the road

With nicer weather and summer vacation around the corner, many children are looking forward to spending more time outside. For some, this includes riding a bicycle, skateboarding in the driveway, or playing on or near the road in some other fashion. Unfortunately, this can be dangerous, especially when it comes to reckless drivers who show little regard for kids, pedestrians, and even other vehicles. If you are a parent, it is crucial to help your child stay safe and avoid dangers. Unfortunately, some accidents happen solely because of another person's negligence and in these situations it is pivotal for victims to take action.

Recovering from a crash caused by an aggressive driver

When it comes to motor vehicle wrecks, there are certain behaviors that can play a role in a crash, such as aggressive driving. Drivers may drive aggressively for different reasons, whether they are stressed out or angry, trying to get to work on time, or simply having a bad day. Road rage is a serious issue and is far too prevalent on roads across the country. Unfortunately, aggressive driving can cause an accident that results in the loss of innocent lives and permanently shatters victims' lives due to lifelong injuries.

Disoriented driving and motor vehicle crashes

Many different risk factors can lead to a motor vehicle collision, such as ice covering the roads and narrow, curvy roads. However, some motor vehicle wrecks are the result of a driver becoming disoriented. There are a myriad of reasons why drivers may become disoriented, but feeling confused as a result of disorientation can significantly increase the likelihood of a crash in multiple ways. As a result, drivers who feel this way should immediately take the necessary steps to safely address their situation and avoid putting any lives at risk.

Can eating while driving cause a crash?

There are many behaviors that can increase the likelihood of an accident, including the use of a cell phone behind the wheel or drinking too much alcohol. Many people realize how dangerous these behaviors can be but fail to keep in mind that there are many other behaviors which can significantly increase the likelihood of a motor vehicle collision.

What are some fatal pedestrian accident causes?

There are a number of things to consider with respect to pedestrian accidents but knowing some of the common causes of these accidents is especially important. Sadly, many pedestrians have passed away after being struck by a vehicle, while some of those who were lucky enough to survive have struggled with debilitating injuries, which may even persist for the rest of their lives. If your child spends time walking near the road, you jog on a regular basis to get exercise, or you are concerned about pedestrian accidents from a driver’s perspective, it is important to review factors in these accidents.

Reviewing the consequences of a pedestrian accident

Often, when people think of traffic accidents, they picture crashes involving vehicles or motorcycles. However, it is important to bear in mind that many upsetting accidents on the road involve pedestrians. Sadly, some pedestrians are ignored and there are far too many reckless drivers on the road, which can make it dangerous for people to walk in certain areas. Moreover, when a pedestrian crash does take place, the consequences can be staggering for victims and those they love, as well.
