Tips for safe summer road trips

With summer just around the corner, residents in Connecticut who are planning on hitting the road for a vacation should plan ahead to ensure they and their families are safe when driving. While there is no way to fully control the actions of other drivers, motorists can protect themselves by making sure their vehicles and passengers are properly tended to. This can go a long way toward preventing problems.

Motorcycle fatalities trending downward

When it comes to owning a bike in Connecticut, many motorcyclists are more concerned with the cool factor than safety. As a result, you may see many riders on the highway without a helmet, or riding with cut-off sleeved outfits. While sleeves on a shirt will not be saving lives any time soon, that helmet might be the difference between life or death for many.

Do you really need police for a fender bender?

It's a question any resident of Connecticut may ask themselves if they get into a minor crash. While you may think that you can get away without having to call the police onto the scene, there are a few things you should know before making that decision.

Fatal multi-vehicle accident triggered by wrong-way driver

Most people who live in Connecticut understand the responsibility that comes with driving a motor vehicle. This responsibility includes not only following the traffic laws for the sake of obeying laws or avoiding fines but primarily to respect the lives of others by driving safely. Unfortunately, there are some people out there who seem to not take the safety of others or even themselves too seriously. Their actions make even the best safe and defensive drivers at risk of being in unnecessary accidents.

What is vicarious liability?

As a company driver in Connecticut, you can enjoy a number of perks such as not having to pay for gas or worry about wearing your car out when driving over long distances. However, if you get into a crash while driving a company vehicle, the situation can get complex quickly.

What is loss of consortium?

If one of your loved ones dies as the result of a Connecticut motor vehicle accident, you have the right to sue the driver of the other car for the damages you sustained as a result of your loved one’s wrongful death. Loss of consortium is one of your damages for which you can sue.

Bold move made to curb drunk driving

For nearly four decades, residents in Connecticut have been exposed to a strong increase in education about the dangers of drunk driving. Mothers Against Drunk Driving was founded in 1980 and, since then, many other groups and law enforcement agencies have worked together to get the message out that drinking and driving really do not mix.

Drugs and alcohol holiday accident risks

People who live in Connecticut know that the time between the middle of November and the start of January tends to be filled with a myriad of parties, family gatherings and other holiday celebrations. Alcohol tends to be served at a large portion of these activities which can increase the number of drivers on the roads who had consumed alcohol prior to getting behind the wheel. It appears anymore that alcohol may not be the only problem people should be aware of.

Driver rescued from flaming car by homeless men

Roadway accidents in Connecticut involving both cars and trucks sometimes result in lost lives. This could also have been true in the case of a collision in California between a sedan and an 18-wheeler that had lost control. Nevertheless, the driver of the sedan is alive today thanks to the heroic actions of two homeless men who pulled him from the flaming wreckage of his vehicle.
