an article by RI Distracted Driving Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


Distracted driving threatens the life and safety of passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists and other motorists on the road in Rhode Island. Distraction while driving can include any action that diverts the eyes and mind of the driver from the roadway or grip on the steering wheel.

If you were involved in a texting while driving or a distracted driving car crash in Rhode Island then it is crucial that you retain a RI distracted driving accident lawyer.


New Forms of Distraction


While distractions have always been a problem for motorists that choose to drink, eat or groom in a moving vehicle, modern technology has exacerbated the problem of distracted-related accidents immensely. Over the last decade, distractions caused by technology have significantly increased the amount of accidents. This is because cell phones, smart phones, and other electronic mobile devices have changed how we communicate from any location, including inside a moving vehicle.

an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


The most common types of automobile accidents that occur on the roads, streets and highways of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations are known as a “rear-enders”.

Nationally, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, “approximately 29.7% of all crashes in the year 2000 were rear-end crashes. These crashes were responsible for 30% of all injuries and 29.7% of the property damage.” http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/809-540.PDF


A large majority of auto wrecks in the Ocean State constitute what is commonly known as “rear enders”. Rear- end accidents in Rhode Island are easier to settle with Insurance Liability Adjusters than other types of vehicular collisions.

Dad works to raise driver safety awareness among teens

Dad works to raise driver safety awareness among teens | Atlanta Trial Attorney Safety On the Road News; | Scoop.it
The fiery crash that killed five teens last weekend during a late-night drive from Knott’s Scary Farm was a grim reminder. Traffic accidents are the No. 1 killer of American teenagers. Almost 3,000 13- to 19-year-olds die in motor vehicle crashes each year in the U.S., according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. More than 400,000 are injured. It’s a situation Doug Herbert has, unfortunately, experienced firsthand. In 2008, he lost two of his children to a crash, when his 17-year-old son took his car to a McDonald’s with his 12-year-old brother in tow. “He was driving too fast and recklessly and lost control,” said Herbert, a former top fuel drag racer from Villa Park who transformed his personal tragedy into B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe) – a free, four-hour teen driving safety school that will hold classes at Orange County Great Park this weekend. “Teens, in particular, they think as long as they’ve got their hands on the steering wheel and are paying attention, they don’t have anything to worry about,” said Herbert, who has taught 12,000 teens and their parents since starting the school. “The fact is, they could be holding onto the steering wheel of an out-of-control car. That’s where a lot of the problems come in.” Learning proper control through accident-avoidance exercises that teach steering, panic braking and the importance of driver concentration without distraction is the focus of a variety of driving programs specifically developed for teens in the absence of driver’s ed training in many California public schools. The Automobile Club of Southern California and, increasingly, automakers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz, now offer teen driver safety programs in the area. The Auto Club has offered a teen driver school since 2001, but it recently introduced an Onboard Teen Safe Driver Program that allows parents to set speed, curfew and boundary limits on a vehicle using a plug-in GPS unit that, when the limits are exceeded, sends a text alert to the parent. This summer, the Auto Club also released a list of safe cars for teens, which included the Chevrolet Sonic, Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Corolla as the most affordable cars to meet its safety criteria and the BMW 528i, Audi A6 and Lexus ES 300h on the high end. All the cars the Auto Club recommends received the maximum five-star overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. For teens, the Auto Club generally recommends a midsize car that is large enough to protect occupants in the event of a crash but small enough to easily handle. It also suggests an automatic transmission to keep the driver focused on steering and braking and an engine no larger than four cylinders, so the car can’t be accelerated quickly and encourage a driver to show off and lose control. Last Friday, BMW announced it is setting up its Performance Center West at the Thermal Club near Palm Springs and will begin offering classes in late November, including its Teen School. Designed to make safer drivers in unpredictable conditions, the one- and two-day Teen School programs are mostly taught by race car drivers. “You don’t know what you don’t know until you come across it,” said Peter Miles, executive vice president of operations for BMW of North America, which has developed its curriculum to respond to those unknowns. “What these programs do is teach reactionary habits so when you get into a bad situation you can get out of it,” such as looking well enough ahead to avoid, or otherwise respond, with quick steering or hard braking and, invariably, full attention. Taught on a closed course instead of public roads, the Teen School includes distracted-driving exercises that show teens exactly how far they travel and what conditions might result when diverting their eyes from the road for as little as two seconds. Texting while driving creates a crash risk 23 times worse than driving while undistracted, according to the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. BMW, which has been offering Teen School at its Performance Center in South Carolina since 1999, provides a certificate of completion that is recognized by some insurance companies in the form of lower premiums. Pricing and specific dates for its new California facility haven’t yet been set but will likely be announced at the L.A. Auto show in November. Mercedes-Benz launched its teen driving academy in Los Angeles in similar fashion three years ago. Its full program costs $1,390 and includes 15 hours of online instruction, 10 hours of classroom study, a three-hour safety workshop, a two-hour distracted-driving exercise and 16 hours of coached driving instruction. A more basic two-hour class is also available for $170. In 1998, California adopted a graduated driver’s license law to help reduce teen traffic fatalities. It requires teens to have 50 hours of supervised driving with a parent, guardian or other licensed adult over age 25 and six hours of classroom driver training before they take a behind-the-wheel driving test and receive a provisional license. For the subsequent 12 months, or until the driver reaches the age of 18, he can not drive with passengers under age 20 or drive between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. unless accompanied by a licensed driver 25 or older. The Auto Club offers free “Dare To Prepare” pre-driving workshops throughout Southern California for 14- and 15-year-olds and their parents, to teach them about the Graduated Driver Licensing process. Last weekend’s crash in Irvine was, sadly, a textbook case of well-known statistics. The 16-year-old driver was not licensed and at least three of the car’s passengers were not wearing seat belts. The specific cause of the crash hasn’t yet been determined, but speed was likely a factor, according to the California Highway Patrol, which reported that the driver of the BMW sedan veered off I-5 and up an embankment at 2 a.m. Saturday. According to NHTSA, a teenage driver is 21/2 times more likely to engage in risky behaviors when driving with one teenage passenger and three times more likely with multiple teenager passengers. Speeding was a factor in 35 percent of fatal crashes involving a teen driver in 2011, NHTSA said; more than half of teen occupants of passenger vehicles who died in crashes weren’t wearing seat belts. “There’s a reason why teenagers have a 90 percent accident probability rate in their first couple years of driving compared to somebody that’s 40 years old,” said Herbert.

excerpt:


A Warwick, Rhode Island Police officer resigned from the police Department after allegations of irregularities in a car accident police report came to light. Other Warwick Police Officer have been implicated in an alleged cover-up of the Motor Vehicle collision.

“A cover-up is an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal evidence of wrongdoing, error, incompetence or other embarrassing information. In a passive cover-up, information is simply not provided; in an active cover-up, deception is used.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cover-up

The incident in question involved a head on crash in which a Warwick Police Officer, motorist was allegedly texting while driving at the time of the mishap. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured or killed as a result of the RI distracted driving automobile accident. In fact, no one even received minor injuries or whiplash in this pick-up truck and car crash.

an article by RI Car Accident lawyer David Slepkow 401-437-1100
excerpt:


On January 7th 2013, a nurse was involved in a serious multi-vehicle head-on accident while travelling southbound on South Main Street in Houston Texas. She was driving a Toyota Camry. The negligent nurse, who fell asleep at the wheel, and was at fault for the collision was on her way home after working an overnight 13 hour shift at a hospital.


The crash was apparently caused by drowsy, sleepy driving because the at fault motorist fell asleep at the wheel.  This was apparent by a cursory review of police reports and emergency medical technician (EMT) records.  The drowsy driving conclusion was also evident by the tired driver’s numerous admissions at the scene of the wreck. These admissions were made to police, emergency workers and medical personnel dispatched to the scene of the head-on accident.


Despite overwhelming evidence of the motorist falling asleep at the wheel, for some reason the NTSB decided to investigate it. Predictably the NTSB concluded that this was in fact a tired overworked motorist dozing off at the wheel of her automobile.
