Ways to avoid a motorcycle accident

Thousands of motorcyclists have recently hit Maryland's roads to enjoy the warm weather and fresh air. While the rush of open roads is certainly an experience like no other, some riders can get swept away with the fun. Below are some ways motorcyclists can keep riding all summer long, free from potentially dangerous accidents. 

Officers try new way to crack down on distraction

For many years now, drunk driving has been a key focus in Maryland with advocacy groups and law enforcement alike working hard to highlight the dangers of this behavior. While there remains room for improvement as sadly too many people still choose to hop in their cars after they have downed several drinks, impaired driving is no longer the only such killer on the roads.

Will people really embrace autonomous cars?

If you are like many residents in Maryland and around the country, you may be watching closely the continued evolution of self-driving cars. You may logically wonder when the roads in your neighborhood might be filled with these vehicles. You might also wonder if these autonomous cars will actually be able to reduce or eliminate accidents as is so often touted. This is indeed an important question.

How many people die in car accidents in Maryland?

As vehicle technology geared toward improved safety continues to be advanced, it is easy for you and other motorists to believe that you will actually be safer when they take to the roads in these new vehicles. However, a look at statistics showing the number of accident fatalities across Maryland in recent years indicates that despite improving safety features and even tougher legislation, too many people continue to die on area roads. 

The top causes of car accidents

Most Maryland residents would like to think it simply could not happen to them; others do not think twice when getting behind the wheel. Despite the fact that many turn a blind eye to car accidents, they nevertheless affect thousands of lives each day. And although preventative safety methods aim to protect as many drivers as possible, there are some lesser-known causes of motor vehicle accidents. 

Trucker cited after fatal crash

People in Maryland and around the country accept at some level that motor vehicle accidents are possible anytime, anywhere. Those accidents that involve large commercial vehicles like semi trucks have a relatively high chance of causing serious damage, injury or even death largely because of their size and weight. On the opposite end of the spectrum, people on motorcycles have a relatively higher than average chance of experiencing serious injury or even death due to the inherent lack of protection around them.

Vehicular fatalities in Maryland

Maryland residents today should be able to feel safer than ever before when taking to the road. Whether as a motorist, passenger, bicyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian, there are strong laws and rapidly advancing safety technology in vehicles designed in large part to reduce accidents and keep more people safe. Sadly it seems that even with these advances, more is needed to be done to stem the tide of deaths in motor vehicle accidents.
