4 tips for proper cellphone use on the road

Many studies have shown the dangers of using cellphones while driving. One said that a full 25 percent of car accidents were connected to cellphone use. It's clear that it's very dangerous, which is why laws banning the practice have been making their way across the United States.

Two very dangerous teen car fads

Teen drivers have very little experience and much to learn about driving, which potentially makes them a risk even when they've completed their training and understand the rules of the road. Unfortunately, the danger they pose, both to each other and to other drivers, could be increased by some dangerous car-related fads.

Are there foods you should avoid before a car crash?

The statistics show that around 1.7 million people in the United States suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) every single year. These wind up taking about 50,000 lives annually, but even those who live through the incidents -- car crashes are a serious contributor -- may have impaired cognitive abilities for the rest of their lives. In some cases, these injuries do not ever fully heal, even with the best possible care.

What to ask witnesses after a car accident

If you're involved in a car accident, the unfortunate truth is that the other driver may lie to the police and/or the insurance company. There are plenty of examples of two drivers colliding at a stoplight and both saying that they had the green light -- even though that's impossible on perpendicular roads (unless there was a rare stoplight malfunction).

Tailgating is often not aggressive, but a habitual mistake

When you think of a tailgater, you probably think of some who is angry and impatient. He or she is riding right on your bumper, glaring at you with every passing mile, even though you're already going the speed limit. The tailgater is trying to push you to go even faster, and he or she probably flies by in a furious passing maneuver as soon as there's any room.
