Technology could stop distracted driving

Every motorist knows that using a mobile device while driving is, at best, unsafe, and at worst, very reckless. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted drivers kill more than 3,000 people every year. While lawmakers in most states, including Kentucky, have made texting while driving illegal, many wonder if more that can be done to stop motorists from using mobile devices while driving.

Safety advances may help older drivers avoid more accidents

New safety innovations for motor vehicles may help older drivers in Kentucky avoid more accidents. While safety features are beneficial to all drivers, those who are older are more likely to have problems spotting hazards around and behind them because of range-of-motion issues, and they may also be more confused when they approach intersections that are busy.

Types of damages a car accident victim may receive

When an individual from Kentucky is involved in a commercial vehicle accident caused by the driver, there are a variety of different categories of damages that might be recoverable. The available damages will depend on the facts of the case, the extent of the injuries, the age of the victim and whether or not the victim was killed.

Kentucky truck accidents and their causes

When a small passenger vehicle is in the vicinity of a large commercial truck, every decision a driver makes is magnified. Even minor mistakes such as failing to signal a lane change could result in a significant collision. In some cases, the driver of the passenger car is at fault for an accident with a commercial truck. For instance, he or she may have been driving in "no zones" such as alongside or behind a large commercial vehicle where visibility is limited.
