It goes without saying that no one wants to be involved in a crash. However, statistics say that most drivers will be involved in an accident at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, car accidents are increasing every year in Delaware since roadways across the state are over-crowded and constantly congested. These days, just going for a short drive can potentially result in a serious crash.
As the United States economy continues to grow, there is a greater need to transport goods, materials and merchandise. The most common and efficient way to transport these things are commercial vehicles such as tractor-trailers. In Delaware and across the country, smaller passenger vehicles are forced to share crowded interstates and highways with these large commercial vehicles. Tragically, car accidents with massive tractor-trailers are often fatal.
Motorcycles are a popular form of transportation in Delaware. They are smaller, take up less space and are more fuel efficient than passenger vehicles. However, due to their small size, motorcycles can be difficult for other motorists to spot, especially during low light conditions. Visibility issues are primary contributing factors in car accidents involving motorcycles. Tragically, these type of accidents often end in serious injury or death.
Being involved in a crash is an event that no person wants to face. Unfortunately, car accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States. In Delaware especially, roads are more crowded than ever, so drivers who navigate these crowded roads need to stay focused at all times behind the wheel. However, statistics are showing that Delaware drivers these days are paying less attention to the road and more attention to cell phones and other gadgets.
Accidents often happen when least expected. When drivers get behind the wheel, the last thing they expect is to be involved in a serious accident. However, statistics say that almost every driver will be involved in an accident at some point in his or her life. Car accidents have become almost inevitable on crowded Delaware roads. A recent three-vehicle crash near Dagsboro resulted in multiple injuries.
When compared to the rest of the country, Delaware is a relatively small state. Although small in size, the state is densely populated. Roadways here experience extremely high traffic volumes resulting in constant congestion. Safely operating a motor vehicle on these crowded roads takes constant focus and attention. Unfortunately, not all drivers these days are cautious behind the wheel, which often leads to car accidents.
Motorcycles can be a fun and economical form of transportation. However, those who travel by motorcycle face unique dangers as roadways across Delaware are often crowded and congested. Being visible to other drivers can be a concern for motorcyclists, since motorcycles are usually more difficult to see than most other vehicles. Also, those who travel by motorcycle are completely exposed, so car accidents involving motorcycles are more likely to result in serious injury or death.
It is common knowledge that driving while under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous things a person can do. While intoxicated, motor skills are greatly impaired and the simplest tasks become extremely difficult. Those who get behind the wheel while intoxicated risk the lives of all those around them and car accidents become almost a guarantee. A Delaware man faces several charges after he caused an accident that injured several people, including two children.
Roadways across the state of Delaware are overcrowded and constantly congested. Navigating these crowded roads may be the most dangerous daily task in the lives of most Delaware citizens. Although updated traffic laws and increased safety measures have made traveling somewhat safer, car accidents are still happening at an alarming rate. Recently, an accident in Milford claimed the life of a woman and injured several others.
Despite stringent traffic laws and increased public awareness campaigns, driving while under the influence of alcohol continues to be a big problem on roadways in Delaware and across the country. Statistics indicate that almost 29 people are killed every day in the United States due to car accidents with drunk drivers. Recently, a Millsboro man was hit with serious charges after a crash that injured two people.
