Driving tips for avoiding pedestrian accidents on Halloween

You know to choose a safe costume for your kids -- one that is not made of dark, constricting fabric that allows for visibility -- but are you focused on Halloween's other safety issues? Pedestrian accidents are serious matters during the holiday season, and Halloween is one of the deadliest times of the year for Connecticut kids. Parents who get behind the wheel to transport their children for holiday parties have a responsibility to take extra care when driving on this pedestrian-heavy evening.

What should a motorcyclist do to prepare for winter riding?

Should you be riding your motorcycle in the winter months? For many motorcyclists in Connecticut, winter is the time to put the cover on the motorcycle, winterize your fuel and set aside your hobby until the warmer months. For others, though, the riding season never stops -- it's simply the choice of clothes that changes. If you are the type of person who likes to ride no matter the temperature, you need to be prepared for winter driving, when the risk of a motorcycle collision can be greater because of weather issues.

Take action against insurance companies after a truck crash

Is it time for you to consider legal representation after you have been involved in a traffic accident? For those who have been victims of a truck crash in Connecticut, options can often seem few and far between: Either take the insurance company's inadequate proffered settlement, or suffer through serious medical conditions without any type of help. What if we told you that you have another course of action? Instead of fretting about your financial situation, imagine having all of the money you need and deserve without having to personally fight the trucking companies.

Understanding blood alcohol content and car accidents

What does the acronym BAC stand for when it comes to drunk driving? BAC is an acronym for blood alcohol content, which refers to the amount of alcohol that someone has in his or her system when he or she gets behind the wheel of a car. It may surprise you to learn that a driver can cause an alcohol-related accident even if he or she is not considered legally intoxicated -- that is, if his or her BAC is below the legal limit of 0.08 percent in the state of Connecticut. In fact, drivers can be convicted of drunk driving with a low BAC if they are deemed incapable of safely operating their vehicle.

Truckers must ensure cargo is properly secured during transit

Truckers have a very difficult job that can easily lead to fatal accidents if they aren't extremely cautious. One of a trucker's jobs is to ensure that the cargo he or she is carrying is properly secured. This applies to loads on flatbed trucks, as well as loads in trailers. In both cases, shifting cargo can lead to accidents that can kill motorists.
