Shocking stats on distracted drivers

Whether bored, multitasking or simply trying to pass the time between errands, drivers can find themselves focusing on numerous tasks while behind the wheel. Unfortunately, even the most mundane activity can pull focus and attention from staying safe on the road and lead to serious accidents.

3 types of concussion symptoms

Motor vehicle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. Damage such as broken bones, lacerations and amputation can be readily apparent. A traumatic brain injury, however, might have symptoms that take hours or days to appear. In some situations, it is the family and friends of the victim who first notice the changes.

How to best take pictures of an auto accident

There is much to do in the immediate aftermath of a car crash. The first thing on your mind should be to seek medical attention. Even if you do not have serious injuries, such as one Colorado pedestrian struck by a vehicle on August 1st, you should still make sure none of your underlying tissues or muscles sustained damage. 

Alternate routes may increase your car accident risk

If you live in the Denver-metro area, there is a good chance you experienced some interruptions in your travel plans when a giant fissure opened up on U.S. 36 between Denver and Boulder. The sinkhole closed both lanes of the highway, forcing motorists to drive an alternate route to work, home and elsewhere. 

Head-on collision leads to serious injuries, one fatality

Many people in the Denver area know that times around certain holidays - such as the recent Independence Day holiday - can be dangerous on the roads. States and municipalities throughout the country carry out public awareness campaigns to get people to recognize the need to drive safely during these times. Unfortunately, we all know that accidents will still occur, and some will result in serious injuries and even fatalities.

Summer can be risky for teen drivers

Few milestones are more important to teenagers than obtaining a driver's license. If you have a young driver in your family, though, you should know about the dangers of summertime driving. That is, summer months are so risky for young motorists that AAA has identified the days between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend as the 100 deadliest days of the year for teen drivers. 

Summer months see increase in car crashes

Many may think that Colorado winters, with their ice and snow-slicked roads, are the most dangerous time to be on the road, but this is simply not true. The time between Memorial Day and Labor Day sees the most fatal car accidents, more than any other time of the year. Recent years have seen a 20% increase in fatalities during this time. Thirty-one percent of fatalities that took place in the state in 2017 took place during the 100 days of summer.
