Conditions that can lead to accidents

California truck drivers have a lot on their plates. Not only do they need to worry about making their deliveries on time, but they also have to keep an eye out for every other driver on the road. When combined with the long and often unusual hours they work, the distance they travel, and the size of their vehicles, it seems like a potential recipe for disaster.

How to avoid becoming another New Year’s Eve statistic

Drunk driving is a problem that endangers people any time of year, but New Year’s Eve is particularly known for festivities involving alcohol. That being said, this holiday is also known for drunk driving accidents in California, as well as across the country. It is important that those who go out to ring in the New Year make wise choices regarding their alcohol consumption and how they are getting home.

Sometimes broken bones can lead to a permanent disability

Most people understand there is a lot of risk involved in getting behind the wheel of a car. Every day, people end up dead or with life-altering injuries, like traumatic brain injuries or spinal damage, as the result of a motor vehicle collision. That could lead you to think that you're lucky to only have to deal with a broken arm or leg.

Load is more dangerous than the truck in some truck crashes

Truck accidents cause numerous injuries and deaths each year in California and across the country. Most people might just consider the size and speed of the truck in large truck collisions. However, the load a truck is carrying might also be dangerous in an accident.

Motorcycle helmets are important, but not a safety guarantee

Just about anyone who rides a motorcycle in California understands that helmets are necessary both to legally ride and for safety. Motorcycling can be a relatively safe activity when bikers ride responsibly and wear the proper gear, and when other drivers are aware of their presence. Regardless of experience, motorcyclists should never disregard the importance of a good helmet.
