Hands-free communication dangers on the road

The advent of the smartphone has opened up many lines of communication for North Carolina residents, but some of these create dangers because of their misuse. One of the most serious issues is the use of one while driving, especially when sending text messages. While accidents have drawn significant levels of attention to the issue of negligent driving and serious distractions, some technologies that seem to be designed for safer driving actually don't eliminate all danger of distraction. In fact, the presence of touchscreen systems and other hands-free tools in a vehicle may be more for convenience than for safety.

Can road rage be a factor in car accidents?

Spring weather is a welcome respite from the doldrums and dangers that come with winter driving. This means that more people will be on the road, including motorcycle riders and new drivers. With greater volumes on the road, the threat of traffic jams increases as well. This can also lead to frustrations that can boil over into road rage.

Car companies agree to install automatic braking systems

North Carolina motorists may be interested to learn that nearly all vehicles that are sold in the U.S. will soon come standard with automatic emergency braking systems.

Auto accidents increasingly are caused by distracted driving

There is a fairly new but rapidly growing danger on the roadways of North Carolina and the rest of the nation. It is called distracted driving, a phenomenon caused by the lightning-fast changes in technology that have brought us the tiny but powerful mobile phone and a host of other digital miracles. These wondrous inventions have not only opened the doors to a world of all possibilities, but their inappropriate use is also responsible for a substantial percentage of deaths and serious injuries from auto accidents in recent years.

Tips for avoiding drunk driving car accidents

Drunk driving car accident statistics have been dropping over the last decade, but the danger still exists. As long as human beings are driving, there will be intoxicated and drunk individuals behind the wheels of automobiles.
