Distracted driving leads to many car accident injuries

Many drivers in North Carolina are all too aware of the dangers of distracted driving. The consequences of this negligent driving behavior can be serious and deadly. In 2015 alone, 3,477 people were killed due to distracted driving, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Tire maintenance tips for improved safety

Drivers in North Carolina probably know how important it is to have good tires on their vehicles. However, they may not know all the steps that they should take to maintain these components. Proper tire maintenance can help drivers avoid deadly collisions, especially when road conditions are wet.

Soft tissue injuries: cause and symptoms

Victims of car accidents in North Carolina will want to learn more about soft tissue injuries because they may be suffering from one without knowing it. These are injuries that affect the muscles, tendons, and ligaments rather than the bones and cartilage (hard tissue). They're notoriously hard to diagnose because X-rays cannot detect them. The symptoms vary widely and can sometimes appear hours or days after an accident.

Study shows benefits of rearview cameras, other car safety tech

Backup collisions are a major hazard for drivers in North Carolina. These incidents can result in vehicle damage and even death, especially when pedestrians are involved. However, new technology is out there that can prevent such crashes. Rear automatic braking systems alert drivers to obstacles behind them. When drivers don't respond in time, these features apply the brakes automatically to slow down.

Focusing on car safety features that are available now

With all the news about the future of self-driving cars, one might think that current vehicles lack significant safety advances. However, drivers in North Carolina should be aware that there are important vehicle developments that are already out on the market.

AAA publishes study on drowsy driving

In North Carolina and across the U.S., drowsiness behind the wheel is seen as a lesser hazard compared to distraction and alcohol. While this is reasonable, the fact is that drowsiness is more widespread than many think. This is the argument of researchers at the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, which has just published a new study about drowsy driving in more than 3,500 subjects.

Reporting motor vehicle accidents

Drivers in North Carolina should be aware of the time constraints when it comes to taking certain actions after being involved in a motor vehicle accident. While medical attention for all injured parties is a priority, it is important to know when to contact one's insurer or to file a lawsuit no matter who is responsible for the accident.

Responding to aggressive drivers

Drivers in North Carolina probably know about road rage, either at first or second hand. They should know, then, how important it is not to provoke other drivers who are being aggressive or bullying. The following are just a few tips on how to handle common situations.

Common reasons for car crashes

Most people living in North Carolina today will experience a car crash at some point during their lives. Most of the accidents are minor, but in 2016 alone, there were more than 40,000 deaths in the U.S. caused by car accidents. Scientists have been working to understand why car accidents happen to hopefully make roadways safer for everyone.
