Why is black ice something motorcyclists should worry about?

If you own a motorcycle, then you may not want to keep it stowed away for the entire winter. Black ice is one of the most dangerous winter-weather hazards on the road though. You should learn how to better identify black ice as well as when and where it's most likely to develop if you want to be safe out on the road.

How often do caregivers improperly restrain kids in cars?

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data shows that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of childhood fatalities here in the United States. There were an estimated 116,000 children age 12 or younger that were injured in car crashes in 2017. A total of 675 children died in similar incidents that same year. Many of these crashes can be blamed on child victims not being properly restrained.

Whiplash doesn’t always cause pain after a car accident

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries that victims suffer in car accidents, and also one of the most commonly overlooked. Like other delayed pain injuries, whiplash does not always cause pain for several hours after the accident. Many car accident victims may not feel the pain of these injuries in the aftermath of a collision, and they may decide to skip the recommended medical examination. This can turn into a costly, painful mistake.

What should passenger car drivers know about truck braking?

If you've been driving long enough, then it's likely that you've seen the aftermath of a tractor-trailer and passenger car crash at some point before. These types of incidents often involve a motorist getting rear-ended by a truck. Truck wrecks often result in critical injuries or deaths for passenger car occupants. If you're wondering why these accidents often produce such serious results, it has a lot to do with truckers not having enough time to brake to avoid a crash.

Why do tailgate accidents occur, and how can they be avoided?

How many times have you looked into the rearview mirror and noticed another driver practically in the back seat of your car? This is called tailgating. While many of us have been taught to keep our distance from the motorist in front of us, few people do that if they're in a hurry or there's bumper-to-bumper traffic. Tailgating isn't just annoying though. It's potentially deadly.
