A suspended license doesn't stop car accidents

Traffic laws exist in an attempt to keep drivers in Tennessee safe. This includes penalties for not following the laws that can result in the suspension of a person's license. Sadly, a person whose license has been suspended may violate the order and pose a risk to him or herself or to other drivers. Car accidents may result.

Risk of death during car accidents higher for motorcyclists

Many Tennessee drivers may be among those who enjoy a motorcycle ride. Whether they are a driver or a passenger, motorcycle enthusiasts agree that not many things can compare to the thrill of the open road. While this may certainly be the case, motorcycle drivers and passengers are at higher risk of suffering serious injuries during car accidents

Although it becomes, at times, second nature, drivers are constantly assessing their situations and making decisions that allow them to respond appropriately. Distractions in the vehicle that cause a driver to overlook the need to make an adjustment often have serious consequences.

Car accidents caused by fatigued drivers are on the rise

Life in Tennessee can become a blur when one is caught up in the commotions of the day. Running errands, work and catching up with all the other things on one's to-do list can be overwhelming. Getting behind the wheel while stressed, distracted or tired can have serious consequences both for the driver and for those who happen to be in or near the road in the same vicinity. Car accidents caused by fatigued drivers can have devastating consequences, as one recent crash underscored.

As the weather begins to warm up across Tennessee, many drivers are taking to the roads for excursions.

Car accidents that result from driver complacency can be a difficult situation to go through, especially when children are involved.

It may be tempting to ignore yellow or red lights when the roadway seems empty or one is in a hurry. The placing of traffic lights and the responsibility to heed traffic laws helps to ensure that all drivers are safe and arrive at their intended destinations without becoming involved in car accidents. Ignoring posted speed limits and traffic signals can have serious of even fatal repercussions, as one young man from Tennessee recently learned.

Tennessee car accidents increase with speed and complacency

Many Tennessee roadways consist of curves and turns that require a decrease of speed and the use of caution. Some motorists become complacent when traveling familiar routes, which can lead to an increase in speed and an increased likelihood of car accidents.

Whether out driving Tennessee roads for personal or work-related errands, operating a motor vehicle can be dangerous task. Conditions of the roadways, weather and other drivers factor in to make sitting behind the wheel of a car a dangerous or deadly place to be. Should a motorist engage in erratic, careless or negligent behavior while operating a vehicle, others on the roads could be at a great risk. A Tennessee musician has been charged in a deadly car accident that took the life of a cab driver.

Driving while under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances is a risky and often deadly decision. Intoxicated drivers are not as cognizant, and reflexes can be slowed or impaired. Car accidents that result from DUIs do not necessarily injure or kill the driver responsible, but those who are unfortunate enough to be in or near the road at the same time could be. A Tennessee man stands accused of driving while under the influence after causing multiple car accidents, including a hit and run, that left one victim dead.

Auto accidents occur due to many reasons. Crowded highways, inexperienced or distracted drivers, and those who choose to operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances are often the leading factors. As the population in many Tennessee suburban areas continues to grow, the roadways are seeing a steady increase in vehicles. With more people behind the wheel at any given moment, deadly car accidents are on the rise.
