Every driver knows it's a bad idea to operate a car while distracted or trying to do something else. But that doesn't stop many Tar Heels from using their cellphones while driving. The danger is far greater than a possible ticket because distracted driving can cost thousands in damages or even lives in the worst circumstances.
Truck accidents are less common than passenger car collisions, but they tend to be far more dangerous. The sheer size, weight of a moving truck can cause tornado-like damage and injury to people near an accident. North Carolina, which has several interstate highways and many other roads, is a hot zone of truck transport where people must be vigilant.
At certain times of the day, you may see traffic backing up on freeways or other highways leading to and from business districts, popular shopping areas or military bases.
People can get hurt in all sorts of accidents, from slipping and falling at a supermarket to suffering an injury at work. Although roads and other public property are the sites of many accidents that cause injuries, private property owners and managers of businesses are always trying to keep pathways clear and hazards under control.
Accidental collisions with motorcycles are often disastrous but also understandable. Bikes have half the visible profile of cars and less protection for the person or people on it. A careless or distracted driver could be the end of a biker. However, not all motorcycle wrecks involve other vehicles.
