How often are crashes caused by tailgating?

Almost everyone has been tailgated before. Other drivers usually do this because someone is not moving fast enough for their liking or because they're in a hurry to get somewhere. It's never safe to have someone drive so close to the back end of your car that it leaves you little to no room to stop. Countless individuals get injured in tailgating crashes each year.

Road debris crash cases call for strong legal representation

Researchers working on a 2016 study by the American Automobile Association (AAA) captured how road debris is responsible for some of the deadliest car crashes in the United States. In fact, between 2011 and 2014, there were more than 200,000 collisions caused by road debris. Approximately 500 people died and another 39,000 were injured in these crashes. This led AAA to highlight some risk factors for road debris accidents.

An East Haven police chase results in 2 motorists getting hurt

Two area residents filed a lawsuit against the East Haven Police Department late last week. In their filing, they allege that they suffered serious injuries as a result of police officers engaging in a high-speed pursuit of a wanted suspect on March 3.

Helmets are effective at saving motorcyclists' lives

There's a lot of research that's been done about how effective helmets are in preventing motorcyclists' injuries and deaths. Researchers' findings have led many state legislators to propose and ratify laws requiring bikers of all ages to wear motorcycle helmets. Connecticut, however, isn't one of those states where such legislation exists.

Do fatal drunk driving crashes happen more often on holidays?

A few days ago, many gathered together at a friend's house or sports bar to have a few drinks as they cheered on their favorite teams during the Super Bowl. Many likely got in their cars and traveled home afterward without incident. They were the lucky ones as this is one of several days each year in which drivers fail to make it home because they get involved in a fatal drunk driving crash.

Long hours on the job can make truckers bad drivers

Commercial drivers operate massive trucks for a living, so most people tend to think of them as highly skilled drivers. While they may have more training and the capacity to be much better drivers, more factors than just education or experience influence how well a person can control a vehicle.
