Distracted driving continues to be an issue

We have all heard about the dangers of distracted driving. Though more and more states have made it illegal to text and drive, Americans are unfortunately becoming less concerned with the risk of dangerous driving behavior. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that the number of drivers who consider drinking and driving a serious threat had dropped by 20 percent. The number of drivers who consider running a red light and texting and driving to be risky has also dropped.

Drunk driving increases chances of fatal motor vehicle accidents

For California drivers who always wear their seatbelt, keep their phones out of reach and adhere to the speed limit, it can feel infuriating to be at the mercy of negligent drivers. Drunk drivers in particular pose a serious threat to other people on the road.

There are pros and cons to bankruptcy, but in most cases, your decision to file may be one of the smartest choices you can make about your financial future.

Motor vehicle accidents snarl traffic, send 7 to hospital

A multi-vehicle wreck sent seven people to the hospital and closed down northbound traffic on a California interstate. Officials say the driver who caused the wreck failed to brake in time to avoid the collision, although no arrests have been made.
