Car accidents caused by distracted driving

When we hear the term "distracted driving" we think of texting while driving, emailing while driving, checking Facebook while driving, or doing any number of things that our smart phones allow us to do while driving. But distracted driving is not a new concept and many activities can fall under the category of distracted driving.

Rest rules limit how long truckers can be on the road

Many truckers who travel through and around the Bryan, Texas, area are subject to regulations put forward by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, FMCSA. Some of these regulations limit the number of hours a truck driver can be on the road before stopping to take a break for a few hours, presumably so the driver can sleep.

Victims of buzzed, tired or distracted drivers can get help

As any Bryan, Texas, resident can probably gather from our previous posts on this blog, drunk, distracted or tired drivers can each leave a person seriously injured in the aftermath of a car accident. All three types of drivers exhibit similar irresponsible behavior in that they have chosen to try to operate a machine that they do not have the physical or mental capability to operate safely. Likewise, all three types of drivers can be held accountable via a personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury lawsuit may also be a victim's best means of making sure he or she is fully compensated for his or her losses.

Fatigued driving can be just as bad as drunk driving

People in Bryan, Texas, and in the surrounding communities probably all know that drunk or drugged driving is a reckless, irresponsible behavior that can cause car crashes, which leave a person seriously injured. However, many people might not realize that fatigued drivers, if they are tired enough, can exhibit some of the exact same behaviors on the road as drunk or drugged drivers.

Texas campaign aims at distracted driving

While motor vehicles are important to society and heavily relied on to get individuals to and from their destinations, automobiles come with them much responsibility and several risks. If a driver fails to uphold their duty to drive safely and is distracted, he or she could cause a serious collision. The legal process protects victims of distracted driving-related car accidents when a distracted driver harms them.

Texting while driving is a serious danger on the roadways

Distracted driving is a growing concern across America. Much of this is owed to advances in technology and motorists wanting to use these devices while driving. Though most adults know and agree that texting while driving is dangerous, nearly half of adults surveyed admit to texting while driving.

Accidents happen for a number of reasons

People throughout the country, including the Bryan, Texas, area hit the roads every day for various reasons. Whether you are heading to and from work, visiting friends or family, or just running out to pick up some groceries, it is not uncommon for people to take the potential dangers of the road for granted.
