The drowsier people are, of course, the more likely they are to cause a car accident. While it seems that most parents and educators would agree with this, top school officials in Fairfax County appear reluctant to make changes on the issue. Throughout the Northern Virginia region, Fairfax schools have the earliest start times, making the roadways a potentially perilous place to be before classes start.

Fairfax County Parkway sees fatal crash between taxi and SUV

The month of June got off to a tragic start for drivers on the Fairfax County Parkway. The busy route sees its fair share of fatal motor vehicle accidents, and a recent crash claimed the lives of two men who were simply riding in a taxi cab. In Northern Virginia, taxis are a frequent choice for those who want to get home safely. Unfortunately, this incident shows that even cab passengers are at the mercy of others on the road.
