Car accidents: Negligent drivers can put children at risk

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. A local woman may be facing criminal charges after killing one and injuring another in head-on collision.

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.

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.

Car accidents more likely when drivers are negligent

Tennessee roadways are dangerous. Weather, road conditions and the actions of other drivers can make operating a motor vehicle a dangerous task. When a driver consumes alcohol or other ability-impairing drugs and then gets behind the wheel, others nearby are placed at serious risk for injury or death. Car accidents remain a significant concern across the state. A recent accident has cost one man his life and injured his young passenger.

Driving a car comes with tremendous responsibility. Understanding the laws of the road and being a courteous and cautious driver helps to ensure that all motorists on the Tennessee roadways make it to their destinations safely. Car accidents can and do happen, even with the most diligent of drivers. One couple is hoping that justice is served after they were struck by an off-duty police officer.

High-speed chases often result in serious car accidents

Details are few about a recent multi-vehicle crash in Murfreesboro. Early indications are that a police pursuit was underway immediately before the crash. Driving at high speeds can be deadly, regardless of one's training and experience, often resulting in car accidents with serious injuries, or worse. That appears to have been the case in this instance, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol is now investigating the crash.
