How some states rank in teenage drunk driving

Many California residents are aware of the National Minimum Legal Drinking Act. This act mandates that a person needs to be over 21 years of age in order to consume alcohol in the US. Violating this act can bring about different forms of punishment. Despite having us act in place, there are still a large number of teenagers who consume alcohol.

What can I do if my brakes fail while driving?

Pressing on your brake pedal only to find it unresponsive is a terrifying feeling. Unfortunately, it can happen, and your actions in the moments after can make a significant difference. There are steps you can take to stop your vehicle as safely as possible, which will hopefully prevent serious accidents and injuries from occurring. First and foremost, ensure your vehicle and your brakes are properly maintained at all times. Doing so will greatly reduce your risk of experiencing a braking issue. 

How is phantom pain treated?

After the amputation of a limb in California, you may experience a strange and often frustrating sensation called phantom pain. When phantom pain occurs, you experience discomfort that seems to be coming from the limb that is missing. The exact cause is unknown, and doctors once believed that it was a purely psychological phenomenon. Further research has indicated that phantom pain is, in fact, a neurological condition of the central nervous system, i.e., the brain and spinal cord. 

What is negligent entrustment?

Very often, the results of a car accident in Pomona can be devastating, resulting in death or serious injuries to accident victims. If you have been involved in such an accident, then you may be discovering that in such cases, the amount of compensation offered by an auto insurance provider is not sufficient to cover your injury expenses. In such a scenario, you may be left with little choice but to seek legal against the driver responsible for your accident. Yet if if is revealed that they were not even driving their own vehicle when they hit you, then there may be a strong possibility that they do no have sufficient resources to compensate you. 

Are there different types of spinal cord injuries?

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can cause massive amounts of damage. Spinal cord injuries are just one type of damage that may occur, and these can have devastating consequences depending on the severity of the injuries. The Mayo Clinic explains the different types of spinal injuries and their effects. 

Losing hope after a motorcycle crash

There are many consequences that may come into the lives of motorcycle accident victims, whether they suffer brain trauma, have a hard time with financial issues or become seriously hurt. All of these hardships can cause some motorcycle crash victims to lose hope and feel like giving up. Unfortunately, this can make their lives even harder and get in the way of their ability to recover.

Operating a different type of vehicle and the risk of a crash

There are many different behaviors which can lead to a motor vehicle crash, such as someone choosing to get behind the wheel after having one too many or a driver paying no attention to speed limits. However, there are less obvious risks and examples of dangerous driving, which may not receive very much attention. For example, inexperienced drivers may pose risks to themselves and others, and even someone who has been driving for many years may be inexperienced in certain ways when they get behind the wheel of a different type of vehicle.

How can I prevent drowsy driving?

Getting a good night's rest is crucial for your health. It can also prevent serious car accidents from occurring should you become tired behind the wheel. Drowsy driving causes similar impairments as driving while inebriated and can be just as dangerous as a result. That's why the National Safety Council offers the following information on drowsy driving and how it can be avoided. 

Describing the danger of eating while driving

While most in Pomona would point to drunk drivers as being those they most fear encountering while on the road, distracted drivers can be just as dangerous. Indeed, research information shared by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that 3,166 people were killed by distracted drivers in America in 2017. Most would likely classify distracted drivers as those who use their cell phones while behind the wheel, yet there is another form of driving distraction that is equally (if not more) prevalent: eating while driving. 

Can nighttime driving be deadly?

As a California motorist, you know first-hand that traffic does not cease once the sun has set. Even in the nighttime hours, people are rushing home from work, going to work or just leaving for a night out on the town. While you may be used to driving at night, you may not realize the increased danger of becoming involved in an accident. According to the National Safety Council, you are three times more likely to be involved in a deadly accident at night than you are during the day. Why is there an increased danger and what can you do to minimize your risk of getting into an accident?
