Car accidents: Crowded interstates can be extremely dangerous

Interstate highways are often the easiest and most efficient routes for travelers and commuters in Delaware and across the country. However, driving on crowded interstates at speeds in excess of 70 mph can be intimidating for any driver regardless of experience or skill level. According to statistics, nearly 5,000 people in the United States are killed every year in car accidents on interstates. A recent crash on I-95 in Wilmington claimed the life of one person and injured two others.

To prevent car accidents, stay focused behind the wheel

Driving these days can be incredibly risky and is a privilege that many Delaware residents take for granted. Far too often, drivers let things like phones and electronic devices distract them when they should be putting all their attention and focus on the road. With so many vehicles sharing roadways across the state, staying attentive behind the wheel has never been more important. Losing focus for just a split second is long enough to cause car accidents.

Car accidents involving pedestrians are more likely to be fatal

These days, pedestrians are literally everywhere in Delaware cities thanks to a booming economy. Walking is one of the most popular and economical forms of transportation, and it's a great way to stay in shape. However, walking near crowded roadways is incredibly dangerous. With pedestrians and vehicles in such close proximity, accidents will happen. Tragically, car accidents involving pedestrians are often fatal.

Car accidents are a common occurrence in Delaware

One of the few guarantees in life is that accidents are going to happen. Unfortunately, car accidents are on the rise across the state of Delaware as more and more vehicles utilize already overcrowded roadways. Traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States, and this is not likely to change anytime soon.

Car accidents: Distracted driving is a cause for concern

Venturing out on Delaware roadways these days is always a risky endeavour. Drivers never know what they may encounter, which is why it is always very important to stay focused when behind the wheel. Thanks to modern technology, motorists today face an abundance of distractions that can take focus away from the road. Distracted drivers are one of the main causes of car accidents across the United States today.

Car accidents with tractor-trailers are often fatal

As the U.S. economy continues to grow, there is a greater need to ship goods and merchandise throughout the country. The most economical and efficient way to do this is with tractor-trailers. For Delaware motorists in passenger vehicles, it can definitely be intimidating to share the road with these massive trucks. Because they are so big, car accidents involving tractor-trailers have a much higher chance of being fatal.

Car accidents involving bicycles are on the rise in Delaware

In the state of Delaware, cycling has become a popular form of recreation and transportation. Traveling by bicycle is environmentally friendly, very economical and a great way to stay in shape. However, as roadways across the state become more crowded, traveling by bicycle can also be very dangerous. Since cyclists are minimally protected, car accidents involving bicycles have a greater chance of being serious or fatal.

Head-on car accident leaves police with questions

There are times when a car crash has a very clear cause and someone who is very clearly at fault. Other times, police have to piece together exactly what happened, based on evidence and eyewitness testimony, if either is available. This is what Delaware police are facing with a recent car accident where two vehicles struck each other head-on.

Car accidents: Hit-and-run crashes can be traumatic

Unfortunately, not all drivers in Delaware are careful or responsible behind the wheel. It's safe to say that no person wants to be involved in a crash, yet thousands of people every year are injured or killed in car accidents caused by negligent drivers. Being involved in an accident is scary enough, but when the at-fault driver flees the scene, the experience can definitely be traumatic. Police are seeking information about a recent hit-and-run crash near Greenville.

For Delaware drivers, car accidents are inevitable

In life, nothing is guaranteed. The future cannot be predicted, and uncertainty is just something that is always there. Accidents can happen anywhere and at any time, especially on busy Delaware roadways. Drivers are faced with numerous dangers every time they get behind the wheel. Although traffic safety laws and infrastructure improvements help to reduce car accidents, no amount of preparation or precaution can totally prevent accidents from happening.
