Driving in flood waters

If you live in certain areas of Texas, you may be at greater risk from floods. Whether caused by a huge coastal storm or a rain storm that lasts a long time, flooding presents danger to anyone in its path, and it is important to understand how to stay safe. As a driver, you may think you can drive on roads that have flooded over, but this is not a good idea. The best thing to do is turn around, but if you have to drive through make sure you practice extreme caution.

How do truckers prevent fatigue?

When driving in Texas, it is not uncommon to find yourself sharing the road with an 18-wheeler or some other large truck. These vehicles are needed as they transport and deliver many essential items from gasoline to groceries and more. However, an accident involving one of these vehicles can be extremely dangerous. This is why truckers need to be very careful to operate vehicles safely and avoid becoming tired when on the job.

Pedestrian accidents during Halloween

People are struck by vehicles while walking throughout the year, but some occasions are especially likely to result in pedestrian accidents. For example, Halloween is a particularly dangerous time for those who go from door to door while wearing costumes and ask for candy. A driver may collide with a pedestrian at a relatively low speed, which can still be dangerous, or they may even run into a trick-or-treater at a high speed, claiming their life or causing them to become seriously harmed.

Depression, anger and other emotions after a car crash

The physical toll of a motor vehicle collision can be overwhelming. Some people pass away after being struck by a negligent driver, while others suffer massive injuries that alter the rest of their lives. However, there are many other hardships that auto accident victims may have to work through. For example, some people face a number of difficulties from an emotional point of view after they are involved in a motor vehicle wreck. Stress, anger and depression are some of the emotional challenges that may arise under these circumstances and it is important to address these emotions properly.
