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.

People will give any excuse for a car accident

When someone else causes a car accident and slams into your vehicle, the problem seems fairly clear: They hit you. Maybe they didn't see a stop sign or got distracted by their phone. You don't necessarily know what happened, but you know that you didn't make any mistakes, and it was their fault.

Questions to ask about an elderly loved one's driving ability

It's difficult to know if a loved one can still drive safely. You may worry about their abilities declining as they get older, but they may feel that they can still drive without any major issues. They may also not want to lose their independence. It's tough to give that up, and they may try to ignore their own safety issues or even try to hide them.
