When you think of road rage, you typically think of drivers cutting each other off, yelling out their windows, and allowing it to severely impact their driving. However, there is a dangerous type of driving that is a step below full-blown road rage, and it's known simply as aggressive driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this has really turned into a serious issue.
Rush-hour traffic stalled on Sam Cooper on March 27 as an accident blocked the eastbound lanes of the highway. Three vehicles were involved in the crash, and witnesses reported that one of the cars was so mangled that it looked like it had caught on fire. The other vehicles were also smashed into pieces, with debris strewn across the highway.
Drunk driving accidents can occur any time someone who is intoxicated gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. The irony is that even those who have committed acts of driving while under the influence do not always learn their lessons the first time around. In fact, many Tennessee drunk driving accidents are committed by repeat offenders.
Any kind of car and motorcycle accident can result in injuries or worse for those involved. However, when there are several vehicles involved, there may be a greater risk of injury for anyone who is caught up in the car accident. A recent multi-vehicle car accident on a Tennessee roadway resulted in one individual losing his life and a road closure that lasted for several hours.
Whenever a person climbs into the passenger seat of a vehicle, that person is essentially putting his or her life in the hands of the driver of that vehicle. A driver then has the legal responsibility to safeguard his or her passengers in any way he or she can. If a car accident ensues and a passenger in Tennessee is killed or injured, they or their family may have cause to seek legal damage against a driver. A recent car accident in Tennessee could result in this kind of legal action, as three people died as a result of the crash and apparent actions of the driver.
When drivers are traveling on roadways, they typically have a certain amount of faith that other drivers are going to abide by the rules of the road. This is actually for the safety of everyone on the roads. Any kind of intersection can be a particularly dangerous place for drivers, especially if another driver disregards the rules of the road at any time. One Tennessee intersection became the scene of a car accident recently.
Having several cars traveling in close proximity can increase the chance of a collision. If any vehicle on the road loses control for just a moment, there may be a car accident as a result. One recent crash in Tennessee occurred as a driver of a pickup truck lost control of his vehicle.
Whenever a car runs out of gas, getting out of the way of traffic is vital for safety reasons. However, that alone might not be enough to stay safe along the roadway. A recent Tennessee car accident occurred as a woman came upon a couple stopped along the road after their car had run out of gas.
Any kind of car accident on the roadway at night can be devastating for the people involved and lead to any number of injuries for all. However, any injuries from a head-on car accident can be much more severe than in a simple fender bender. A recent head-on car accident in Tennessee resulted in the death of one of the victims whose vehicle was hit by an SUV.
Whenever people need to cross the road in a busy metropolitan area, it can be a risky move. However, there are rules of the road, and most people find it easy to cross and stay safe while cars are out and about. Nevertheless, there are times when pedestrians find themselves in danger of becoming involved in a car accident. A recent Tennessee car wreck involved four pedestrians.
