Authorities seek third vehicle involved in crash in Shelton

When people unexpectedly lose a loved one in Bridgeport, their first question is often "Why?". That question often becomes more prevalent when the loss is sudden, such as in a car accident. Not only do the families of accidents victims seek an understanding of what caused the accidents that claimed their loved ones, but so too do law enforcement officials and insurance companies. Should information surface that such collisions were the result of recklessness, the grief felt by those impacted by them may be compounded even further. This may be true even if they know the allegedly reckless parties.

Death of autonomous car driver raises more questions

Connecticut may be on the other side of the country from California but that does not mean that area residents are not avidly watching the development of autonomous vehicles. This technology is promised by many to not only reduce but maybe someday eliminate vehicle accidents. Across the country there are numerous vehicles now with some self-driving features already included. Things like automatic braking and self-parking are just two examples.

Medication impairment can be just as risky as alcohol impairment

Teenagers and distracted driving

Some Connecticut parents may worry about the dangers of distracted driving as their teenagers learn to drive. However, they may not always consider that their behavior plays a role in how often a teenager uses a cellphone behind the wheel.

Avoid a drunk driving tragedy this New Year’s Eve

Across the country, countless people will be ringing in the New Year next weekend. It should not be a surprise that alcohol is often a large part of the festivities. There is nothing wrong with getting together with friends or family to drink and celebrate, but it is vital for those who drink alcohol to make smart choices. Revelers in Connecticut and elsewhere may significantly increase their chances of making it home safely by New Year’s Day when they are responsible about drinking and driving.

State sees Thanksgiving jump in speeding, crashes

When the holidays arrive, many people take to the road as their way of getting to friends' or family members' homes in Connecticut to share in the celebrations. This can be an efficient and affordable means of travel for people, especially for families that may not otherwise be able to afford to make the trek to be with their loved ones at these times. Unfortunately this opens up the possibility that instead of safely reaching relatives' or their own homes, people in vehicles will be involved in one of the many crashes that seem to happen when the roads get busy.

How many traffic fatalities occur in Connecticut?

If you drive regularly in Connecticut, you have no doubt seen your share of dangerous driving maneuvers. It can leave you amazed that some people manage to make it from one place to another without causing an accident when you see how they drive. Even if you do not witness accidents caused by speeding, drunk, distracted or otherwise reckless drivers, that does not mean that serious crashes are not happening.

Data inconclusive on Uber's effects on drunk driving

Many Connecticut drivers fear being hit by a drunk driver, and the existence of Uber and Lyft has left some feeling relieved. Yet studies on the effects of ride-sharing services have not found consensus on whether or not the existence of these apps has actually lowered rates of drunk driving.
