Far too many car crashes in California involve impaired drivers. For all the potential causes of a car accident, driving while intoxicated is one that can be controlled by those who choose to consume alcohol. Families who are unfortunate enough to have their lives turned upside down by the poor choices of a drunk driver should never have to endure such senseless pain, but, time and again, too many are forced to do so. Recently, a man has been accused here in California of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs after another man's life was lost in a wrong-way car accident.

It is possible that the only reason a California man survived a horrific crash was because his was not the first vehicle hit by a suspected drunk driver.

Every day, hundreds of thousands of parents across the nation go through the ritual of making sure that their children are safely buckled in their car seats and that the car seat itself is firmly secured inside the vehicle. This important step gives already anxious parents peace of mind in knowing that their child is protected in the event of a motor vehicle accident or other traffic-related incident.
Driving on California roads can seem like a perilous task at times as most roads in the state are continuously busy. This does not make for ideal driving conditions, and the probability of being involved in a car accident tends to increase with higher amounts of traffic. While many accidents that occur result in minor fender benders, sadly, there are those that have more tragic results.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released its annual report outlining which automakers had the largest number of recalls over the preceding 12 months. While the report didn't contain too many surprises, it did show how car companies are continuing to struggle with large-scale recalls spanning not thousands, but rather millions of vehicles.
People will never state that they would prefer their pastimes come to an end because of an accident. Recreational activities are supposed to be fun-filled occasions where individuals can enjoy the company of their family and friends. Unfortunately, what may be a joyous gathering can lead to serious injuries or a tragic loss. A local California teen recently died after being involved in an early afternoon crash.
