You need to make smart decisions after a car crash

A car crash happens unexpectedly; it is a jarring, sometimes devastating experience. In trying to pull yourself together afterward, you are probably not going to be thinking clearly. However, the decisions you make following the accident are going to have significance in the weeks and months ahead.

PTSD common after a motor vehicle accident

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common traumatic events experienced by both men and women. The physical injuries often heal much quicker than the emotional ones. MVAs account for about 3 million injuries each year. According to the National Center for PTSD, about 9 percent of those people will develop post-traumatic stress disorder or a similar anxiety-related disorder which makes it difficult to drive or get in the car.

You will rarely see an accident coming until the moment before impact or the sound of crunching metal. According to the Highway Safety Research Center, upwards of 250,000 accidents occur in North Carolina in a given year. Even the safest of drivers is likely to have experienced an accident at some point, and the shock of the unexpected situation is often as traumatic as any other part of the event. There are some common driving mistakes that can easily cause an accident, so if you want to stay safer, avoid the following.

Debunking the myths about ignition interlock devices

When you are facing a DUI or DWI charge in North Carolina, your driving privileges are in immediate danger of suspension, to say nothing of the other penalties and fines you may face. One method the state uses to help reduce drunk driving is the installation of ignition interlock devices. In order to reinstate your driver’s license, the court may order an IID for installation in your vehicle.

Tips for sharing the road with motorcycles

If you are like many motorists, you may find yourself feeling a little uneasy each year when the temperatures warm and the motorcycles start appearing on North Carolina roadways. Feeling nervous while driving around motorcycles is quite common due to their small size, which can make them harder to spot, but sharing the road with motorcycles is a reality you probably cannot avoid.
