People often make imprudent choices in their lives for a variety of different reasons, with a variety of different outcomes. These decisions could, unfortunately, harm many people.

Millions of people take to the country's roadways every day. Many are committed to safety and follow traffic laws and safety guidelines. These drivers can respond to a threat on the roadways in a way that will allow them to avoid an accident caused by the negligent actions of another party.

The vast majority of people who get into the drivers' seats of cars know the rules of the road and are willing to obey them. Their goals, beyond arriving at their destinations, are to ensure their personal safety, as well as the safety of those around them by avoiding car accidents.

Police in Massachusetts are still investigating an accident that sent seven people to the hospital.
Women who are expecting have a million different things to worry about.

Tractor-trailers serve a vital role in this country's economy by moving goods from place to place in a relatively efficient manner.

Unfortunately, mistakes made by tractor-trailer drivers can result in serious highway accidents. For example, two people in Massachusetts suffered serious injuries in a collision with such a vehicle.
Massachusetts police are still investigating the causes behind a fatal car crash earlier this month. At this point, they have stated that speed appears to have been one of the factors.

There have been may lives irrevocably changed through these tragic collisions.
By now, almost everyone is likely aware of the dangers of operating a motor vehicle while distracted.

One Massachusetts high school recently hosted a clinic to demonstrate to students exactly how dangerous it is to take one's eyes off road.
Many people enjoy outdoor activities in the company of their cherished four-footed companions.
