Fairfax police get schooled in moped safety

Fortunately for its many residents, Northern Virginia is home to a robust mix of transportation options. With the price of gas certainly not going down in recent years, some residents are becoming more open to alternatives to driving a car. Some may choose to get around on a moped; if they're not going far, a moped can be ideal for in-town driving, if weather permits. Still, due to its small size and unfamiliarity for many drivers, a moped can easily become involved in a car accident if vehicle drivers aren't attentive.

Are Virginia's DUI laws decreasing drunk driving accidents?

Virginia is often known as one of the toughest states on drunk drivers. If one causes a drunk driving accident in the state, he or she may face more than a night in jail, even for a first offense.

Roughly a decade ago, a bipartisan set of lawmakers drafted over 70 pieces of legislation aimed at cracking down on drunk drivers.

Box truck kick-starts multi-car crash in Virginia

No driver is perfect all the time, but most of the time drivers are able to balance minor distractions with their responsibilities toward others on the road.

Fiery scene after multi-vehicle Virginia truck accident

One of the worst types of car accidents any Virginian can become involved in is one in which a vehicle is pushed into an intersection. While all crossings are different, the typical intersection has many vehicles traveling through at once, some in different directions and some speeding through a yellow light just in time. Most people travel through intersections several times a day without giving them a second thought, but these aspects of one's everyday life can instantly become scenes of chaos if negligence or recklessness are involved.

Multi-vehicle crashes can cause a lot of damage on Virginia's roadways. At best, they may result in a fender-bender and perhaps a bruised ego for a negligent driver. Many times, though, they cause far more devastation, especially if they are or become fatal motor vehicle accidents.
