Car accidents caused by a distracted driver are devastating for many reasons. First, they can result in catastrophic or fatal injuries for people who had no way of identifying or avoiding the distracted party. Second, they do not have to happen; people can stop distracted driving accidents by refraining from driving while distracted.
Every time we get behind the wheel, we are putting ourselves in at least some risk of getting into an accident. And of course, not every accident will be a serious one, but it is still critical to recognize the risks that come with operating a complex machine weighing thousands of pounds.

Teenagers take risks and break rules, no matter how hard parents try to dissuade and educate them. These attempts to test boundaries and act out are a part of maturing. In many cases, they are relatively harmless. However, these unsafe behaviors while driving could have a permanent, life-changing impact on teens and those who share the road with them.
In a matter of weeks, kids across Pennsylvania will be settling into a new school year. This can mean new schedules, new teachers and possibly entirely new schools.

Summer is right around the corner, and perhaps no one looks forward to this time of year more than teenagers. Summertime means no homework, less responsibility and a general sense of freedom.
Even though nearly every driver recognizes the dangers of distracted driving, we still see them all over Pennsylvania roads. They might drift out of their lanes on the highway or be slow to start when the light turns green; you might hear their brakes screech as they come to a quick stop because they didn't see traffic stopping ahead of them.
When people think about car accidents, they often imagine one of two extreme situations: either a fender bender or fatal crash. However, most collisions fall somewhere between being a minor scrape and a major catastrophe.
This year, St. Patrick's Day falls on a weekend, which means countless people across Pennsylvania will be taking the opportunity to celebrate. For many, this means donning green and enjoying at least a few green alcoholic beverages.
