What to do if a car crosses the centerline

One of the most frightening experiences any driver can have is watching another car cross the centerline in front of them. This can happen for all manner of reasons, from drunk driving to distracted driving to a simple error by a young, inexperienced driver who can't stay in their lane. It also happens when people think they have room to pass but they do not.

Don't try to skirt the hands-free driving laws

In Arizona, lawmakers have enacted hands-free driving laws to make sure that people do not get distracted behind the wheel. Under these laws, only hands-free systems can be used for phone conversations. Texting and driving is illegal, but so is holding your phone to make a call.

A concerning trend with pedestrian accidents

Perhaps the most dangerous type of car accident is a pedestrian accident. It can be fatal or result in serious injuries even at low speeds. While an accident at 10 miles per hour between two cars in a parking lot probably won't even send anyone to the hospital, a person who gets hit at the same speed could have life-altering injuries. These are simply the most unforgiving type of accidents.
