Motor Vehicle Accidents Archives

How likely is your car to roll?

You have to think about a lot of different safety issues when buying a new or used car. You probably consider tech options, like lane-departure warning systems and airbags. You probably consider the sheer size of the vehicle and how well it will fair when colliding with a different car or truck on the road.

Just let those tailgaters pass

When someone starts tailgating you, it is all too easy to get angry. You may even be tempted to do something aggressive yourself, like suddenly hitting the brakes -- known as "brake-checking" the other driver. You may simply start driving slowly to make them angrier and more frustrated than they were before.

What post-accident chronic pain feels like

If you are seriously injured in a car accident, you could wind up suffering from chronic pain for months or even years after the crash. Some people have to deal with it for the rest of their lives. If you have a back or spine injury, for example, although it may technically heal, you may always have back pain when you wake up in the morning or physically exert yourself.

How safe are pickup trucks?

People often think of pickup trucks as very safe vehicles, perhaps because of their reputation as tough, rugged machines. They are tall and powerful. They have four-wheel drive. They tend to dwarf compact cars and hybrid vehicles. People who drive trucks every day -- even if they're just commuting or heading to the grocery store -- feel safe on the road.

The first car at a four-way stop gets to go first

It's important to know all of the rules of a four-way stop, such as the fact that cars arriving at the same time need to allow drivers who are going straight to pass through the intersection before drivers who are turning. It's also important to note that right turns take precedence over left turns and that you're supposed to yield to the right if the cars are on perpendicular roads.
