CVSA sets up May 5 as start of 2020 International Roadcheck

Truck accidents occur all too frequently in North Carolina and across the country, and many of these are the fault of truckers who violate federal safety regulations. To fight this negligence, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance holds a three-day inspection spree every year called the International Roadcheck. The roadcheck for 2020 will be held from May 5 to 7.

How to prevent distracted driving

Even if you are personally committed to avoiding distracted driving, there's no denying the many temptations that creep into your vehicle when you get behind the wheel.

FMCSA announces new study into causes of large truck crashes

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issued the results of a large-truck causation study in 2006. Now, it intends to conduct another study along the same lines, one that takes into account various changes over the previous decade. Truckers and other drivers in North Carolina should know that the FMCSA announced its intention in January 2020. It's now seeking info on how best to proceed with the study.

Volvo working on drunk driving prevention technology

Accidents caused by impaired drivers claim far too many lives each year in North Carolina. Ignition interlock devices provide an effective way of preventing motorists who have consumed alcohol from operating motor vehicles, but they require drivers to submit breath samples and are considered too invasive to be fitted as standard equipment to new cars. Auto manufacturers are working on systems that can detect alcohol without breath samples, and Volvo says that it hopes to introduce such a system within five years.

Drugged driving on the rise across America

Recently on this North Carolina blog, we discussed how marijuana can negatively affect driving abilities, thereby increasing the risk of a car accident. Now, a recent survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that driving while under the influence of marijuana has increased by 47 percent over the last four years. That equates to 12 million motorists admitting to driving while high in 2018, accounting for 4.7 percent of all drivers. The increase is likely on account of society's increasing acceptance of the drug, including legalization in some states for medical and recreational purposes.

How to safely cross the street

As a pedestrian, there are often times when you need to make your way from one side of the street to the next. While this sounds easy enough, once you're ready to make your move you'll realize that danger is lurking.

Car accident claims and the discovery process

North Carolinians who have been injured in a car accident often have extensive damages with which to deal. They may suddenly be subjected to physical pain and limitations, their emotional well-being may be threatened and their finances can take a significant hit in the form of unexpected medical expenses, rehabilitative costs and lost wages. The good news is that compensation may be recoverable if a negligent driver was responsible for the injurious car accident in question.
