Your Case Start To Finish

October 2018 Archives

Does Drowsy driving = drunk driving?

Daylight saving time has ended, and although this typically means the chances for getting an extra hour of sleep, the change of schedule can throw off your sleep pattern. In fact, you may be among the many who take advantage of the extra hour to stay up later. Nevertheless, it may be days or weeks before you get back into a rhythm, and meanwhile, you must go on with your normal life.

Truck drivers' distraction dangerous on the road

When people get behind the wheel in Wisconsin, they can face dangerous roadways. One of the most significant threats to highway safety that has escalated along with technological advances has been the rise in distracted driving. When truck drivers are distracted, the risks can be especially great. Passenger cars involved in crashes with large trucks are particularly vulnerable to catastrophic damage. While reducing distracted driving overall is a national safety priority, safety experts agree that it's particularly important for trucking companies.

Limo crash deadliest since 2009

The fatal limousine crash that made headlines throughout Wisconsin and the rest of America had been previously cited for brake failures. Among the infractions the vehicle had been cited for were constricted under-vehicle brake connections and out of service brakes. These citations occurred in March, months before the Oct. 6 accident in upstate New York that killed 20 people.

AAA study raises questions about auto safety systems

Road safety advocates say that sophisticated safety features like adaptive cruise control and emergency braking systems can prevent 4 out of 10 traffic accidents and reduce road deaths by as much as 30 percent. However, a recent study released by the American Automobile Association claims that this kind of technology could actually be making the nation's roads more dangerous. Researchers from the group's Foundation for Traffic Safety came to this conclusion after polling 1,200 drivers in Wisconsin and around the country who purchased new vehicles equipped with driver assistance systems in 2016 and 2017.
