Protecting motorists from drunk truck drivers

It goes without saying that semi-trucks have the potential to cause massive damage when involved in accidents with other vehicles in Shelby. For this reason, truckers are tasked with maintaining strict performance standards, which of course includes avoiding drinking while driving their vehicles. Yet despite reductions in the number of drunk driving incidents reported involving truckers in recent years, some still continue to engage in this negligent practice. Indeed, according to information shared by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, two percent of truck drivers involved in fatal accidents in 2014 had BAC concentrations higher than .08. 

How can I avoid distracted driving?

As a Tennessee driver you know that safety is crucial when behind the wheel. However, keeping distractions at bay while driving can be difficult, especially with smartphones and GPS in every vehicle. Geico offers the following advice in this case, which will help you preserve the safety of yourself as well as other drivers.

How to choose the right motorcycle helmet

Safety should be a crucial concern for motorcyclists in Tennessee. In addition to following all rules and regulations, choosing the right motorcycle helmet is imperative to keeping you and any passengers safe. But how can you be sure that a particular helmet is good for you? Motosport.com offers advice on the different types of helmets available and which ones offer the highest level of protection.

With fatal crash claims, best outcome depends on knowing the law

In the wake of a Tennessee vehicle crash that claims the life of a loved one, the last thing someone may be thinking about is the future. The grief of the moment is so encompassing, affecting immediate and extended family alike. Only sometime later might the reality of the financial impact of the loss come to be appreciated, initiating thoughts about whether it's possible to recover stability and raising questions about how to go about making that happen.

What can you do to cycle safely?

To keep Tennessee roads as safe as possible, drivers and cyclists have to look out for one another. There is no other way to make it happen. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration perhaps put it best: "A large percentage of crashes can be avoided if motorists and cyclists follow the rules of the road and watch out for each other." 

Explaining fault vs. no-fault insurance laws

When one gets in a car accident in Shelby, the expectation is that auto insurance will pay for any injuries he or she (as well as other involved) sustained, along with the whatever repairs to any and all vehicles caught up in the collision. The question is whose insurance is going to pay for it. Most might automatically assume that the "at-fault" driver is responsible. At the same time, some might say that regardless of fault, those involved in car accidents are required to submit claims to their own insurance companies. So who is correct?
