Labor Day campaign targets drunk drivers

Every year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration promotes a "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" initiative in Connecticut and other locations. This program is designed to prevent drivers from getting in a drunk driving accident by encouraging responsible vehicle operation practices. Further, the "Drive Sober" initiative is generally promoted around Labor Day, which is one of the riskiest days for becoming the victim of a drunk driving accident. Nighttime driving is particularly dangerous. During this holiday span, about half of our nation's vehicle accidents occurring between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. involve alcohol, down from about 14 percent of auto accidents that occur during the day.

How dram shop laws can help a drunk driving victim

Did you know that a restaurant owner or server may be held accountable for the actions of a drunk driver in Connecticut? That's right, even though those people were not behind the wheel of the car that caused the auto accident, they still share legal liability under what is known as "dram shop" laws. Under these regulations, family members or victims themselves may seek legal recourse against an establishment that over-served a driver and indirectly caused a drunk driving accident.

How to lower risk of injury in a Connecticut motorcycle accident

How do you prepare for a ride on your motorcycle? Many a motorcycle accident victim has been caught without the appropriate safety gear and training, making the consequences of a crash more severe than it might have been otherwise. Taking the right precautions before you ever get on your motorcycle could make a major difference in the outcome with your interaction with a negligent driver.

Are cyclists ever considered to be pedestrians in Connecticut?

Did you know that a bicyclist who chooses to ride on a sidewalk in Connecticut can actually be considered a pedestrian? Typically, cyclists fall into their own category, but they are still considered to be "vehicles" according to traffic law. A cyclist may very well be considered the victim of a pedestrian accident if an errant vehicle causes an injurious crash -- but only if certain conditions apply. Here are some things to consider if you are a cyclist who likes to leave the road.
