Fatal motor vehicle accidents: how common are they?

Cars have become an inextricable part of our daily lives, especially here in America. We use them for nearly everything, from carting the children to and from school to picking up the groceries and doing our daily commute. They are such an essential part of our routine, in fact that we tend to forget what a dangerous endeavor we are undertaking when we get behind the wheel. However, the fact remains: unless you’re a professional skydiver, driving a car is probably the most dangerous thing you do every day. 

Drunk driving deaths: How bad are the numbers?

It’s no profound statement to say that the invention of the car changed this country in countless ways. Automobiles allowed us to spread out to the suburbs. They gave us a sense of freedom that plays into our American heritage. They also allowed us to move things with relative ease. Because of this, we rely on them perhaps more than any other country in the world, taking 233 billion trips per year in our vehicles.

Motorcyclist dead after car fails to yield

Riding a motorcycle is an awesome experience. You’re out in the open air, enjoying the scenery from a perspective that a car just can’t offer. But the things that make motorcycles so enjoyable are the same things that make them so dangerous. You’re completely exposed to the elements, and, even with protective gear like helmets, a meeting with the unforgiving pavement often spells disaster for the rider. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to the inattentiveness or unawareness of passenger cars, whose drivers often show an unwillingness to share the road.

Usually, when we talk about accidents, it’s about drunk driving or negligence on the part of one of the drivers. But there are other factors that cause car accidents that are less obvious, but just as dangerous. City planners, in an effort to stay within a budget or save money, often cut corners or simply overlook dangerous conditions at intersections around Texas.
