Road rage may be to blame for multi-vehicle crash

Road rage is a problem for some drivers on the roads. When a motorist becomes angry over how slowly others are traveling or because they're late, they may act aggressively and threaten others. Aggressive drivers may also make mistakes, speed or fail to put enough distance between themselves and others.

Motorcyclist ends up in hospital after collision in Connecticut

Driving a motorcycle is dangerous even at the best of times, which is why it's so important for motorcyclists to pay attention to what's happening around them. When a motorcyclist is hit, there's a much higher chance that they'll be hurt or killed compared to other passenger-vehicle drivers. This is especially true when more than one vehicle is involved.

What types of distractions can lead to an intersection crash?

Research compiled by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration in 2009 showed that driving errors accounted for 90% of all crashes. It's unlikely that such a statistic has changed much in the past 10 years. We still have a problem with motorists driving while intoxicated, drowsy or distracted here in Connecticut. All of this can impair a motorist's ability to adequately react to other vehicles when merging and passing them. This can result in crashes.

2 crashes draw attention to the dangers on one roadway

Police in Seymour responded to two accidents on the same road, close to the same time, according to a report released on April 5. It's wise to be conscious of multiple incidents like these because they may be a sign of unusually hazardous conditions for area drivers.

Vehicle infotainment systems not as safe as believed

Connecticut drivers who frequently use Apple's CarPlay may be interested in a new study that looked into the safety of the infotainment platform. The study found that using CarPlay reduces driver's reaction times more than texting, using marijuana or being at the DUI limit for alcohol.

Americans remain wary of self-driving cars

Many people in Connecticut have shown interest in the potential of self-driving cars and autonomous technologies to reduce the number of car accidents. After all, human error and negligent drivers are the cause of most crashes, which continue to take thousands of lives and injure many more each year on American roads. Still, according to one syrvey by the AAA, only 12% of Americans would feel safe riding in a self-driving car. Around 28% of people said that they are unsure what to think about the technology. They don't feel that they have the information and statistics they would need to opt for autonomous technologies.

DST raises rate of fatal crashes nationwide

Springing forward one hour for daylight saving time can leave many Connecticut residents feeling groggy in the morning. Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have found what kind of impact this can have on car crash rates. Specifically, the first week after DST sees a 6% rise in fatal crashes nationwide, coming out to some 28 additional deaths every year. The risk for a deadly crash increases the farther west one lives in a time zone.
