Reckless driver drags pedestrian in car accident

Reckless drivers increase the risk of harm not only for motorists but for pedestrians as well. For instance, a reckless driver speeding through an intersection recently hit a pedestrian and dragged her under his vehicle before coming to a stop. Albany pedestrians should be on the watch for reckless drivers in order to minimize their risks of being involved in a car accident.

Texting and driving is on the rise in New York

As if the streets of New York were not already dangerous, new research shows that two-thirds of Americans admit to texting and driving. Texting and driving has led to an increased number of distracted drivers, which is a major cause of many car accidents.

Fatal accident in Albany prompts calls for action

Lawmakers and city officials are scurrying to make changes at an intersection where a pedestrian was recently killed in a car accident, but this is unfortunately little solace for the family who has to deal with the loss of a loved one. One concerned citizen said she has been complaining for years about the number of drivers that speed through that very same intersection. While no amount of traffic signs can completely stop negligent drivers, lawmakers are hoping to at least reduce the risk at this particular intersection.

Man charged after fatal 2012 motorcycle accident

Motorcyclists are often at greater risk of injury and death than those in cars. Anyone who has been injured in a motorcycle accident understands how dangerous riding the vehicles can be. But it's important for victims of motorcycle accidents to remember that they have the same rights as any other driver. If you are struck by a negligent driver, you have the same rights as car accident victims.
