How can new cyclists protect themselves?

Riding a bicycle in Tennessee is a great way to stay fit. However, adults who’ve never ridden on streets before must take the right steps towards safety, especially when sharing the road with vehicles. In this case, Active offers the following tips to keep you safe and secure no matter where you ride.

Tips for avoiding a crash with an emergency vehicle

When a person sees those lights flashing in their rearview mirror, what should they do? Some people feel a moment of panic and forget what to do next. Although an accident with an emergency vehicle can happen even when a driver does everything right, drivers can reduce the risk of an accident if they know the rules of sharing the road with emergency vehicles. Here are a few tips for staying safe around emergency vehicles:

What if my car insurance claim is denied?

If you’re involved in an auto accident, the next step is to file a claim with your insurance company. Even if you’re fairly certain that you’re not at fault, your insurance provider may believe otherwise. If your claim is denied, The Street recommends taking the following steps.

Starting a new job and the risk of a wreck

There are many times in a person’s life when a motor vehicle collision may be more likely. Someone driving during poor road conditions may have an increased chance of crashing with another vehicle or veering off the road. Other situations may also lead to a greater car accident risk, including those which may not seem significant. For example, someone who starts a new job may be more likely to cause an accident for multiple reasons and it is essential to be vigilant if you have recently switched fields or plan to work somewhere else in the near future.

Understanding why a truck driver may speed

While certainly not something that is encouraged, speeding is a practice that many motorists in Shelby may fall into in certain situations. And while it certainly is not acceptable, most can comprehend why drivers may do it. What may be next to impossible to grasp, however, is why one driving a large semi-truck or tractor-trailer would even consider it. The very nature of their vehicle's makes them difficult to control, and speeding only compounds that difficulty. Yet why then would the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration cite speeding as being one of the most common causes of truck accidents? 

One in three teens texts while driving, according to research

We have all heard how dangerous it is. We all know we shouldn’t do it. Many people do it anyway, and teenagers more than most. Texting while driving causes accidents and kills people every day. The Journal of Adolescent Health has released new research finding that nearly 40 percent of all teens had texted or emailed within a 30-day span.
