Why do drivers run red lights?

It seems so simple: If the light is red, all traffic has to stop. There are exceptions, such as when you're making a right turn, but even then, you have to stop first, check to see if the way is clear and then turn. There's never a situation where you can just blow through a solid red light.

Death is 51 percent more likely when teen drivers have passengers

How often have you seen teenage drivers get behind the wheel as a group of friends piles into the car? Maybe you have plenty of memories of riding around in your own teen years, with five (or more) people packed into the car because only one member of the group had a license.

How can you treat a whiplash injury?

It's hard not to notice a whiplash injury. A whiplash will usually manifest as an extremely painful, tender and even swollen neck. You may even suffer from splitting headaches as a result of this injury, which is caused by strained, bruised and torn neck muscles from the gravitational forces involved in an auto collision. The accident doesn't even have to be a fast one for whiplash to occur. Many fender-fender benders have left vehicle drivers or passengers with whiplash injuries that take many weeks to resolve.

New York limousine crash deadliest since 2009

When you call for transportation to an event, you expect that the driver is going to be skilled and provide you with safe passage from one place to the next. If the driver is not paying attention or under the influence themselves, then there is no question that the day could end badly.

Crash results in serious injuries for motorcyclist

Crashes can happen at almost any time and any place. It's important for the police to determine who is at fault. This will help provide the evidence you will need to make a claim against the other party for the injuries and damages that have occurred as a result of their negligent acts.

Why do hit-and-run drivers leave the scene?

It's hard to imagine leaving the scene of a car crash when someone could be hurt. Most people stop immediately and do what they can to help. Not only do most people feel guilty or responsible for making sure the other person gets medical treatment, but everyone has been taught to stay at the scene since that's the law.
