Many Wisconsin families understand what it is like to try to help a loved one overcome addiction. Whether the drug of choice is alcohol, cigarettes or narcotics, addiction affects not only the person using but the user’s family members, friends and co-workers, as well. Cellphone addiction is a relatively new problem that is on the rise and often leads to motor vehicle accidents.
Drivers know that they should not drive when drunk, tired or distracted. Doing so creates the perfect situation in which a crash could occur. Instead, it's much better to call for a taxi or to get a friend to pick them up.
Wisconsin intersections are dangerous. They are often the scenes of motor vehicle accidents, especially if a driver disregards stop signs or traffic lights. However, in some situations, whether a particular party is at fault is not always immediately clear. Investigators often have to recreate collisions to try to determine who or what may have caused a particular incident.
While there is always a risk for personal injury when a licensed driver gets behind the wheel or someone travels as a passenger or pedestrian, most people reasonably expect other travelers to adhere to traffic laws and safety regulations. When people do follow the rules, it definitely reduces the chances of a motor vehicle accident occurring. Unfortunately, a Wisconsin roadway became the scene of a tragedy when a driver recently headed the wrong way on a highway.
Car crashes happen throughout the United States every day. From a teen who isn't familiar with the roads to an elderly person who should have retired their license, there are lots of people who take risks or make mistakes and put others in danger.
It is often said that April showers bring May flowers. However, spring time storms also often place travelers at risk. Inclement weather plus slippery roadway conditions often equals motor vehicle accidents in Wisconsin and elsewhere. In such situations, driver negligence is often a causal factor.
Car crashes can happen anywhere, from the residential street you live on to the highway in bumper-to-bumper traffic. It can be hard to imagine getting into a crash on your typical route, but it happens to people all the time.
Like all other states, Wisconsin law prohibits operation of a motor vehicle if a person's blood alcohol content reaches or exceeds a certain level. The problem is that many licensed drivers disregard such laws. This type of negligence often leads to fatal motor vehicle accidents.
There is always a certain amount of inherent risk involved when traveling by motor vehicle in Wisconsin or any other state. Some people may be more at risk than others, such as inexperienced drivers, those driving in severely inclement weather, or those sharing the roadway with another motorist who is impaired or distracted at the wheel. When motor vehicle accidents occur, the latter two factors are often the cause.
Speeding is one way to be sure that any crash you're in will be worse than if you'd been traveling the speed limit. Despite that, people speed every day, hoping to get to their destinations faster, to evade police, to race or for other reasons.
