What can family members do after a fatal car accident?

Car accidents are an all too common occurrence. In New Mexico in 2016, there were 358 fatal car crashes resulting in 402 deaths, a significant increase from only 298 deaths in 2015. Numerous factors can lead to accidents, and as impaired and distracted driving increases, fatalities from car accidents will also rise.

Science reveals the top causes of car accidents

This has probably happened to you at some point or another: You are driving on the highway when traffic inexplicably slows to a crawl. As your car progresses, you see the cause of the jam--a serious roadside accident. As you pass the scene, you crane your neck to take in the details, and you wonder what could have caused such a terrible crash.

The role of personal responsibility in preventing car accidents

There is an increased awareness in New Mexico about the dangers of driving while impaired. Many residents of the state have had personal experience with or have seen friends or family members suffer the loss of a loved one as a result of an accident connected to alcohol. While many people understand that driving impaired is unacceptable, statistics show that some still choose to engage in this dangerous behavior.

New poll reflects concern over texting while driving

Distracted driving has become an increasing threat on United States roadways. In response to this, most states, including New Mexico, have enacted laws prohibiting texting while driving. A new poll conducted by the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America indicates that people believe texting while driving is even more dangerous than driving whiled influenced by marijuana.

Study reveals shift work leading to drowsy driving

Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital have conducted a study to determine the link between night or rotating shift work, which over 9.5 million Americans are employed in, and drowsy driving, which is considered a public health hazard. While many people in New Mexico and across the U.S. are aware that shift work increases the risk for medical conditions like heart disease, drowsiness may be the more immediately pressing issue.

Anti-distraction features could be making distraction worse

Every driver should know that they would be wise to avoid distractions while driving. When a driver focuses on anything besides the task of driving, or when drivers take their hands off the wheel and eyes off the road, they can easily hit other cars, pedestrians or bicyclists.
