Fatigued truckers are extremely dangerous

The duties for truckers who are transporting cargo or passengers must be followed precisely or there is a risk that innocent people will be harmed. The Hours of Service regulations that are set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration help to ensure the public's safety.

Tips to avoid distracted drivers on your next motorcycle ride

Riding through Texas on a motorcycle is one of the greatest pleasures in life. Once you make it out of the city limits of Waco, you have endless miles of open road available. Unfortunately, like with most things, riding a motorcycle comes with risk. The weather can suddenly change, causing the roads to become dangerous. A deer can leap out in front of you and cause you to lose control. And, the most dangerous, are the cars and trucks cruising down the street, operated by drivers that think multitasking behind the wheel is a good idea.

Beware the blind spots surrounding semi trucks

In some ways, you may assume that a semi truck driver has an incredibly good view of the road. He or she is far higher than all other vehicles, so it's harder to have that view blocked. The side mirrors on a semi are also far larger and more versatile than those on a minivan or a passenger car.

Tired teens crash more often

Teen drivers face a lot of risks on the road. They lack experience since they simply haven't been driving as long as adults. They may have distractions, such as friends or cellphones, in the car with them. These are all reasons that accident rates are so high.
