North Carolina drunk drivers can face tough consequences


Drunk driving is without argument an irresponsible and dangerous practice of motorists in North Carolina and beyond its state lines. National statistics show that someone dies nearly every 45 seconds due to the consequences of a drunk driving accident. Stringent laws are an important part of protecting the public and ensuring that pedestrians and other vehicles and passengers are safe while travelling on North Carolina highways and byways.

North Carolina considering bill to alter trucking regulations


Many people think that trucks are safer than all other forms of transportation due to the fact that most truckers are more experienced and better trained than other drivers who drive personal vehicles. On the other hand, a truck accident also has a greater chance of causing extreme devastation, accidents and fatalities due to the size of the vehicle.

Reckless driving is one of the major causes of car accidents

Reckless driving is one of the worst forms of traffic violations. Traffic violations involving reckless driving include speeding, not stopping at traffic signals, tailgating and randomly changing lanes without using the proper signals to warn other drivers on the road. Such reckless driving has the potential not only to cause accidents with other vehicles, but also accidents that involve pedestrians.

Liability in the event of a North Carolina tour bus accident


Many tourists visit North Carolina's attractions and beautiful countryside every year, and oftentimes they come in large groups that hire tour buses to explore the various points of interest found in the state. A tour bus involved in an accident can be damaging on many fronts, because out-of-state victims may not know state motor vehicle laws or who to contact in case of an accident. Tour buses, much like any other large vehicle, can cause greater destruction in the event of accident as opposed to smaller personal vehicles.
