Too many lives cut short by DUI car accidents

Fatal accidents caused by drunk drivers are among the most preventable. Most people are aware that drinking and driving don't mix and that a person who has been drinking should not drive. In this day and age of so many ride options, Uber and Lyft for example, obtaining alternate transportation is not difficult. Sadly, drivers who have been drinking still choose to get behind the wheel, sometimes causing serious car accidents in Tennessee as a result.

Car accident may have been caused by driver that fled the scene

When a car accident involves multiple victims, it only seems to amplify the hardship. If someone flees the scene of the crash, it may leave victims angry and unsure of how to proceed. Though the justice system exists to ensure that any criminal behavior is punished, if a perpetrator cannot be found, it does not always result in the outcome desired by the victims. A recent car accident here in Tennessee has left many people with questions because the driver at fault, so law enforcement says, did not stay on the scene.

A new year may not mean fewer car accidents

A new year has begun in Tennessee with yet another fatal car crash. A new year frequently begins with the hope that the new year will be better than the old year. Where car accidents are concerned, that hope may go unfulfilled. Roadways continue to get more crowded, and the increased number of vehicles leads to an increase in the likelihood of a serious accident.

Negligent drivers have potential to cause serious car accidents

Roadways in Tennessee, as in other parts of the country, have become increasingly congested as the number of vehicles on the roadways continues to increase. While the vast majority of drivers are careful and attentive, there is an ever-present possibility that a driver may be distracted, under the influence or diving recklessly. Any of these situations have the potential to cause serious car accidents.

Car accidents involving motorcycles hard to anticipate

Traffic accidents can happen anywhere at any time in Tennessee. With so much more traffic on the roads it can be more difficult to anticipate every eventuality. Any car accident can happen in the blink of an eye, but car accidents involving motorcycles can be almost impossible to anticipate as motorcycles are sometimes difficult to see.

Fatal car accidents may be caused by an impaired driver

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Tennessee can be hazardous to the driver and to other drivers on the road. Car accidents can happen at any time, but when a driver is impaired, the likelihood of an accident rises dramatically. A serious accident took place on a recent Saturday night in Nashville.

Car accidents can detour the start of a work week

On Monday mornings, people leave their homes in Tennessee to begin a new work week. Some may be thinking about upcoming meetings or other events as they sit at a traffic light. Though that is how the day started for 14 commuters in the vicinity of Stateline Road and Germantown Road, their mornings were interrupted by multi-vehicle car accidents that resulted in a fatality.

Drunk drivers remain a major cause of car accidents

Drivers are told many times that defensive driving in Tennessee is safe driving and that it is best to expect the unexpected. Some situations can be anticipated such as slowed or stopped traffic. However, it is nearly impossible to be prepared for the completely unexpected and unpredictable situations that can be caused by a drunk driver. Sadly, drunk drivers remain a major cause of car accidents, many of which are fatal.

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
