Intersections are where most accidents take place because they involve traffic and pedestrians crossing paths and require them to strictly follow signs and signals. If a driver isn’t paying close attention to the signals or who’s going through an intersection, it can easily lead to a collision between two drivers or a car and a pedestrian. These accidents are especially dangerous because usually nobody sees them coming and the speed causes catastrophic damages.

Most drivers have become desensitized to the danger that comes with driving a car on the road with other cars. That desensitization has allowed drivers to believe that multitasking while driving is a completely safe and normal thing to do. In reality, multitasking while driving is distracted driving, which is incredibly dangerous and can easily lead to collisions.

When a distracted driver’s actions cause a wreck that injures you or damages your property, you should feel comfortable taking legal action that holds them accountable.

Work zones can be extremely dangerous for workers and drivers alike, and when drivers speed through them, any accident in a work zone can quickly become deadly. That’s why PennDOT rolled out a trial of speed cameras in work zones in an attempt to slow down drivers and reduce the amount of fatal accidents that occur.

According to PennDOT, there were nearly 2,000 crashes in work zones in 2018. 43 percent of the crashes resulted in injuries, and 23 people died. The program’s intent is to lower these numbers and make work zones safer for everybody over the next five years, so how do they plan to achieve that?
