When a collision occurs on a two-track road

Drivers have to keep an eye out for hazards in all sorts of situations, whether they find themselves behind the wheel during a snow storm or are driving during 4 of July celebrations. However, there are less common accidents that can also pose serious risks, such as those which take place on a two-track road. Driving on two-track roads can be dangerous for a number of reasons and, as with all other places, drivers should be aware of the risks they face.

How do waste collection accidents occur on the road?

For someone whose job duties involving collecting waste and recycled material, there are many hazards they may encounter on a daily basis. Driving a garbage truck can be incredibly dangerous and, sadly, these accidents can result in the loss of life or a long-term disability. For those who are employed in this industry, understanding some of the common reasons why garbage truck accidents happen is pivotal.

Auto accidents and debris on the road

We have been over many motor vehicle wreck causes (drunk driving, speeding, etc.) on our blog. It is important to point out that some hazards are less common but also very concerning. For example, a traffic accident may occur as a result of debris on the road. Sometimes, this debris is left behind by careless people, while some is the result of nature. For example, a heavy windstorm could knock down a tree limb onto the road. As a driver, it is essential for you to be mindful of these hazards and take proper action in the event a crash occurs.

Handheld devices and traffic crashes

When it comes to the reasons why traffic accidents happen, there are all sorts of causes, from the use of mind-altering substances behind the wheel to recklessly exceeding the speed limit. However, distracted driving is especially problematic. People become distracted in all sorts of ways, but handheld devices are particularly concerning. Unfortunately, many motor vehicle collisions have been caused by someone using their smartphone or tablet while driving a vehicle.
