16 people die in Ohio accidents over Thanksgiving

Ohio residents should be able to look forward to the holidays and the ability to spend time with friends and family without worry that someone will not arrive to their intended destination safely. Sadly, this is simply not possible. From cell phones to alcohol, there are simply too many things that can distract a driver or ways a driver can make a senseless choice that puts others at risk.

Lower your chances of getting into an accident

Drivers in Ohio have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders when they get behind the wheel. Not only do they have to watch out for themselves on the road, but they also have to keep an eye out for other vehicles and drivers. Here are ways that a person can lower their chances of getting into a crash.

Four vehicles involved in fatal crash on I-77

Residents in Ohio understand that despite their best efforts to drive safely, others around them may not always be so careful. This is part of what makes motor vehicle accidents a sad reality on area roads despite strong laws and continual improvements made to vehicle safety features. When an at-fault driver is killed in a crash, however, people should not necessarily assume that they have no rights when it comes to seeking compensation after a crash.

New apps could help curb drunk driving

Drunk driving remains a problem in Ohio and across the country, but the advent of new technologies is giving some hope that reducing the number of intoxicated drivers who get behind the wheel could be a click away. Several new apps help to monitor whether or not a driver is safe behind the wheel, and at least one county is already putting it into practice.

Two men hit, one killed, by impaired driver

Most Ohio residents have been aware of public awareness campaigns and educational efforts attempting to teach drivers the dangers of getting behind the wheel of vehicles after consuming alcohol. Despite the strong emphasis on drunk driving and the risks it poses to innocent people, too many people continue this behavior. In the process, innocent people are injured or even killed for no good reason.

Ohio's approach to distracted driving

In recent years, distracted driving has emerged as a major public safety threat in Ohio and around the nation. Yet, while distracted driving may be talked about as a clear danger like that of drunk driving, the laws have yet to catch up. As such, many innocent people are left vulnerable to being injured or even killed due to the negligence of people who simply can't let a single text or phone call wait. 

Children most at risk from distracted driving near school

As children across Ohio head back to school, families may not realize that the schools their children go to may be in distracted driving danger zones. As CBS News reports, a new study has found that school children are some of the most endangered due to the busy streets that often surround schools.
