Each year, thousands of people across the US are seriously injured or killed in car accidents as a result of unsafe driving behaviors.. As distracted drivers lead the path to destruction on the roads, no one is safe from their antics, meaning that defensive driving is more important than ever. Other motorists are at risk and must be extra vigilant, along with bicyclists and pedestrians too.
Continued increases in traffic incidents are an ongoing source of consternation for government officials, infrastructure experts, and analysts. With more evolved traffic patterns, public campaigns, and safety awareness throughout cities and towns, the expected result would be fewer deaths and accidents; however, the same culprits tend to be at play on highways today such as texting and driving, drinking or taking drugs before getting behind the wheel, speeding, and not wearing seatbelts.
When a 4,000-lb car crashes into another, or into a motorcycle, or a person traveling by foot, the potential for catastrophe is enormous. Those who are lucky enough to survive car crashes may still be left with traumatic brain injuries or concussions, spinal injuries, broken bones, or sprains.
