How many bicyclists are hurt in traffic accidents?

On the road, people face a long list of hazards, such as the reckless behavior of other drivers and traffic congestion. However, some are especially vulnerable to the dangers associated with traffic accidents, such as bicyclists. If you ride a bicycle and were hit by a vehicle, you might feel very lucky to be alive. Unfortunately, these accidents occur far too frequently, and it is important for bicyclists to be aware of the prevalence of this potentially fatal problem.

How prevalent is underage drunk driving?

There are a wide variety of risks on the road, from those which involve weather (ice, fog, etc.) to driver errors. However, some problems are especially concerning and it can be very difficult for victims and their loved ones to know that the crash was entirely preventable. For example, many people in Virginia and across the country have chosen to drive drunk. To make things worse, this behavior also occurs too often among younger people who have not even reached the age of 21. Whether you are a teen or the parent of a young driver, it might be useful to know how common underage drunk driving is.

Looking at boat trailer accidents

Motor vehicle collisions occur on the road in all sorts of ways. Sometimes, they involve a large truck, while others involve motorcycles or pedestrians. Some wrecks happen because of distractions, but crashes are also the result of intoxicated driving and many other risky behaviors. In some instances, a traffic accident may involve a boat that someone is pulling on a trailer. As a driver, it is important to be mindful of some of these less common types of crashes.

When extreme stress leads to a car wreck

People are aware of many of the dangers that come with stress, such as an increased risk of certain health problems and a lower quality of life. However, some forget to keep in mind that stress can make life difficult in many other ways as well. For example, someone who has been suffering from high stress levels due to work, family or some other reason may be more likely to cause a motor vehicle collision.
