18-year-old Virginia driver sparks drunk driving accident

Today's adults are generally well aware of the dangers of driving drunk, but it's easy to forget that each new generation must learn to behave responsibly behind the wheel. When they don't, the consequences can be far worse than in other types of situations. An 18-year-old Virginia man apparently caused an erratic drunk driving accident this November when he struck several vehicles.

Conclusions found in Bay Bridge tractor-trailer accident

Countless residents of Northern Virginia routinely travel into other states, particularly Maryland and the District of Columbia, for work or for play. The traffic patterns around the DC metro area can be particularly brutal, though, as commuters combine with government traffic which in turn mixes with the routes of commercial vehicles passing through the mid-Atlantic region. In such a heavily-traveled area, a tractor-trailer accident is bound to happen.

Truck's attempt to pass results in fatal Virginia accident

When Virginians go through driver's education programs, they're usually cautioned against passing at the wrong time. Passing another vehicle is generally only done under ideal circumstances, such as good weather, road markings that indicate passing is allowed and the lack of traffic in either direction. Attempts to pass at the wrong time can easily result in fatal car accidents and the resulting death and funeral expenses for the victims' families.

Multi-car accident in Virginia caused by fleeing driver

In heavily-populated areas, such as Northern Virginia, the urban and the suburban combine to make cities and neighborhoods unique. One drawback of such an area, though, is the significant congestion on local roads and highways. When someone gets into a car accident in a rural area, there is frequently just one or two cars involved. When a car crash takes place in a more populated locale, there is a chance that many more vehicles and injuries may be involved.

Effects of texting could be same as those of drunk driving

Most drivers believe there is no more dangerous a situation than drunk driving. The effects of a drunk driving accident can be terrifying, from fiery crashes to the lives lost as a result. However, thanks to ubiquitous cell phone technology, there is now another behavior that can produce very similar results: texting while driving.
