Past DUI convictions did not stop fatal car accident

A woman from another state was sentenced last April to 12 to 18 years in prison for a drunk driving accident that led to the death of a 79-year-old women in Charlotte, North Carolina, last summer. The drivers had past DUI convictions, but this did not prevent her from getting behind the wheel and causing this fatal accident.

Fatigued drivers and sleep apnea

North Carolina residents may be surprised to hear that approximately 28 percent of commercial truck drivers are afflicted with mild to severe sleep apnea according to a study sponsored by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This finding magnifies the dangers posed by fatigued drivers.

Shoulder and back injuries common among nurses and medical aides

Working in the medical profession is a noble calling. Every day, you do your best to help alleviate the suffering of others. That can sometimes result in your suffering instead. Repetitive motions combined with needing to lift heavier patients can result in serious injuries that can keep you from doing your job pain-free. You may be worried about reporting the injury, seeking treatment for it or otherwise calling attention to it. After all, it could endanger your job if your employer finds out that you can no longer perform all aspects of your job, which you love.

The 100 deadliest days for car accidents

The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety used to refer to June through early September as the summer driving season.

One of the major causes of this designation is distracted driving such as talking or texting.

Tuck accidents: truck safety slowing down

The U.S. Department of Transportation is delaying measures aimed at preventing truck accidents. Once again, it put a hold on regulations mandating training requirements for large truck and bus drivers even though Congress has requested these regulations for at least 26 years. This inaction has the potential to affect all motorists in North Carolina and nationwide.

Outdated headlights are not a safety bright spot in Cary

Cary residents may be concerned to hear that approximately 2,500 pedestrians are killed in a fatal car accident at road crossings each year during the nighttime hours because of outdated headlights according to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. Headlight technology has not kept pace with other recent improvements in other automobile equipment such as cameras, computers and warning signals.
