Haw dangerous is eating while driving?

Seeing all of the recent awareness campaigns aimed at stopping people from texting or using their cell phones while driving may have you feeling much more comfortable about the likelihood of you encountering a distracted driver on Dallas' roads. The trouble is that there is another form of driving distraction that may be even more prevalent than texting while driving, yet just as dangerous: eating while driving. This may seem shocking given that few (if any) people probably do not view such an action as being distracting. Statistics show, however, that it indeed is. 

Accidents caused by flashing high beams

There are many examples of reckless behavior on the road, but some are especially upsetting. For example, some drivers may flash their high beam headlights, for whatever reason, while approaching a vehicle. This can not only startle a driver, but it may leave them unable to see the road and may actually cause a head-on collision with the person who flashed them. Aside from this, some drivers fail to dim their high beam headlights, which are also known as brights, when approaching another vehicle. Drivers who act like this should be held accountable for any suffering that results from an accident they cause.

Insomnia and motor vehicle wrecks

We have discussed a lot of the reasons why crashes take place, but there are many other important points to keep in mind. Some people may not realize that certain challenges in life, such as insomnia, can also increase the chances of a crash in various ways. If you have a hard time sleeping at night, it is vital to be aware of the potential risks associated with sleeplessness and prevent your insomnia from causing a collision and making your life harder. Some people are surprised to find out just how dangerous fatigued driving actually is, and you should never get behind the wheel when too tired to drive safe.
