Why do bridges freeze before roads?

While driving on Ohio highways, you have probably often seen the warning signs advising you that bridges freeze before roads do.

How dangerous is driving on a prescription?

Ohio residents like you share the road with plenty of other drivers every day. Some may be traveling while on prescription medication.

New Year's DUI realities in Ohio

Every year around the holidays, there may be an increase in the number of messages put out to the public in Ohio about the dangers of drinking and driving. This behavior is risky at any time of the year but can be more pronounced during the holidays when there is a surge in the number of social events at which alcohol is commonly featured. The number of stories about families who lose loved ones at the hands of drunk drivers is something everyone would like to see eliminated.

What is whiplash?

If you or someone in your family has been involved in a car accident in Ohio, you will want to know how to protect yourself or your loved one. Even the most minor fender bender accident has the ability to leave a person with an injury. In some cases, a physical injury caused by a vehicle crash may not always be evident immediately as symptoms may take a few days to manifest. Whiplash is one type of condition that is known to sometimes take a few days to appear.

The first step to a reduced drunk driving limit

Residents in Ohio have good reason to be concerned about drivers who refuse to put away their keys after they have been drinking. There are too many headlines to be found reporting on the death of innocent people at the hands of these drunk drivers. Such incidents have no reason to happen and are completely preventable if only people would make responsible choices. In some situations, the law may just need to be the way to force people to do this.

3-vehicle crash in Ohio leaves one dead

The more vehicles involved in a car crash, the more serious they can be, especially when drugs and/or alcohol play a part.

Many teens can't keep themselves from texting while driving

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that for U.S. residents between the ages of 5 and 24, the leading cause of death is motor vehicle accidents. Taking proper precautions on the road, such as not speeding, proper use of protective car seats for children, and avoiding actions that lead to distracted driving can help reduce the number of fatal car accidents. The CDC estimates that nine people are killed every day in the U.S., and more than 1,000 are injured as a result of distracted driving.

Post-accident advice

Being involved in a car accident is one of the last things a person in Ohio wants to think about when they get in their vehicle. However, the reality of today's world is that crashes can and do happen at any time. This is due, at least in part, to the fact that many negligent people fail to act in ways that are prudent and instead make choices that put innocent people at risk. Knowing this, it is important to have a plan in place for what to do should a wreck occur.
