What should you do after a car accident? Part 1

You may think that what needs to happen after an accident is obvious, get their insurance information. You are right, however, gathering information is not your priority after an accident. This post will go over some of the things you should do just after an accident, for your safety and the safety of everyone else.

Drivers are being distracted by smartwatches

Smartwatches are the next "big thing" in the technology world. All of the major tech firms are putting out smartwatches. Smartwatches vary from fitness trackers to full-blown semi-smartphone replacements like the iWatch. Unfortunately, all of these updates in technology are also an added distraction to drivers.

Distracted driving: there's an app that's causing that

You are driving down the street and see that the car ahead of you is weaving in the lane. You feel uncomfortable and decide to pass it. As you go around it, you see the driver has her head down while playing with her cell phone. You are witnessing a distracted driver. This person has no regard for her own safety and creates hazardous driving conditions for others.

A guide to follow after a hit-and-run

You are driving your car along the same route as always and suddenly, you are struck by an oncoming vehicle. The driver, who has realized they hit you with their vehicle, has fled the crime scene. The other party might claim it was an unintentional accident later on, but since they did not stay at the scene of the crash, it may be considered a hit-and-run, which is a criminal offense.

Guidelines to follow after a hit-and-run car accident

It is never a good idea to flee a car accident. If a driver intentionally leaves the scene of an accident, he or she has committed a hit-and-run accident. In California, if you have committed a hit-and-run accident, you will be on probation for three years, serving a sentence of six months and paying a fine of $1000.00. Examples of a hit-and-run accident include a car hitting an incoming vehicle and driving away or a driver hitting a pedestrian and leaving the scene. Another example is a driver hitting a parked car and failing to leave any contact information and purposely driving away from the parking lot.

It seems like every year there is a new phenomenon that is taking drivers' attention away from the road. Cell phones, texting, games, GPS and even the radio all had their day in the hot seat.

Injuries associated with car accidents, Part 1

Cars are incredibly powerful and dangerous machines. They, on average, weigh over a ton. They can reach speeds of 80 miles-per-hour and more. They can be taken just about anywhere, for any purpose. They were a revolutionary machine that truly broke the human's connection and reliance upon the ground or town he or she was born. Cars enabled an entire generation of people to pick up and move. Unfortunately, cars are also incredibly dangerous. Cars are involved in thousands upon thousands of injuries and deaths every year due to mechanical failure, driver failure and drunken driving.

Dangerous drunk driving states: How does California stack up?

Drunk driving takes lives. All around the nation, drunk driving laws are becoming more stringent in an effort to deter the reckless behavior. Particularly in California, there are hefty laws in place to fine and suspend drivers from the road based on DUI penalties. There is also a no-tolerance law for drivers that are intoxicated and under the legal drinking age of 21.
