Driving during strong winds

In the fall months, a number of hazards may be brought on by weather conditions. Some areas may see heavy rain and even snowfall and ice, which can certainly make it more difficult to drive. But the wind is another area of concern and some drivers do not pay attention to the different reasons why it can be dangerous to drive during strong winds. In this post, we will look at some of the hazards that are associated with heavy winds, which can lead to deadly car accidents.

Prescription medication and car crashes

People take a variety of prescription medications to help with various ailments. Some people take one drug, while others are prescribed multiple prescriptions for a number of health issues they are struggling with. Unfortunately, these medications can have unwanted side effects and they can create other problems in one’s life, in ways that some people may overlook. For example, someone may be likely to cause a car accident after taking a certain type of prescription. If you take prescription drugs that could impact your driving abilities, be mindful of these risks and stay off of the road if your driving abilities are affected.

Virginia sees jump in drunk driving deaths in 2017

For many decades now, people who live in Virginia have heard about the dangers of drinking and driving. The fact that a person has a reduced ability to make proper decisions or react appropriately when operating a vehicle after they have consumed alcohol is nothing new. Yet, despite knowing this and despite strong laws, far too many people choose to ignore these realities and jump in their vehicles to drive while drunk.

Motorcycle crashes and ice on the road

Often, people decide that is best to avoid taking their motorcycle out during the winter months, especially in colder areas that see significant snowfall. However, some motorcyclists do ride during the fall and winter and there are various weather-related risks to watch out for during these seasons. In fact, many parts of the country are already seeing the accumulation of snow and some motorcyclists may be caught off-guard when ice appears on the road in early November. Unfortunately, bad weather conditions have contributed to many serious motorcycle accidents in Virginia, and motorcyclists, as well as drivers, should be very careful when any poor weather conditions threaten road conditions.

Complications associated with forceps deliveries

For most moms, the ultimate goal of giving birth is to leave the hospital shortly after delivery with a happy, healthy infant, but in some cases, complications arise during the birthing process that make this dream impossible. If you have certain health issues that make the delivery particularly high risk, or if your labor fails to move forward as quickly as your doctors would like, they may decide to conduct a forceps delivery to improve the chances of a safe delivery.
