Wrong-way driver causes crash, injures 4 in Gloucester

What would you do if you saw a pickup truck traveling toward you in your lane? Would you swerve to the right and go off the shoulder? Would you swerve to the left and go into the pickup truck's lane so you could pass each other? When you have only seconds to react -- what would you do?

Injured this holiday? You are not alone.

It shouldn't come as a big surprise that accidents are more common during the holiday season -- everything from motor vehicle accidents to slip and fall accidents. Icy roads and sidewalks, drunk drivers, crowded shopping malls and grocery stores, and the inevitable feeling that you need to "rush, rush, rush" are just some of the things that contribute to holiday accidents.

Slippery icy road in Walpole potential cause of serious injuries

Winter weather brings the potential for snow, sleet, freezing rain and other hazardous road conditions. Those of us in Massachusetts who drive in bad weather are accustomed to navigating a tailspin, although it always takes us one or two snowstorms before our snow driving skills return.

Bike helmets save lives, Boston promotes their usage

Cars and bicycles are sharing the roads more and more often in the Boston area. It was recently reported that there has been a 30 percent increase in bicycling during the last two years thanks to 57 miles of new bike lanes and The Hubway bike share program. According to The Hubway's Facebook page, the program was launched last year and includes a fleet of 610 bikes at 61 stations. Despite the increase in riders, the number of accidents has dropped by 25 percent.

MIT: Cellphone Use While Driving May Just Indicate Lousy Drivers

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recently published a study about the dangers of driving while using a cellphone. Their findings raise questions about the effectiveness of criminalizing cellphone use behind the wheel. The MIT study suggests the real problem may be drivers who engage in risky driving behavior with or without using cellphones. The study does not dispute the well-established facts linking cellphone use while driving with higher accident rates. Peer-reviewed psychological studies have found that even talking on a hands-free phone while driving can impair reaction time as much as drinking can-though talking with people present in the vehicle does not.

Bicyclist seriously injured in Brockton intersection

Belmont Street in Brockton, Massachusetts, is a straight road intersected by other smaller roads. The speed limit is 35 miles per hour. For nearly three-fourths of a mile, there is no crosswalk if one wished to cross Belmont Street.

The Dangers of Back-to-School Traffic

The nation just got through the first few weeks of school this fall and with it came the usual added stress on drivers and kids to stay safe. The reasons are obvious for an increase in the risk of motor vehicle accidents near schools, with or around school buses and in neighborhoods with children.

Bicyclist struck by car in East Boxford, seriously injured

The view from a Google map shows us that Topsfield Road in East Boxford is a small two lane road without much in the way of shoulders. The road winds through a primarily residential area. Any bicyclist riding on this road would need to stick close to the side of the road, but would be forced to share the road with motor vehicles. Conversely, cars would be sharing the road with bicyclists.
