Illegal street racing's impact on car accidents

Illegal street racing places individuals in Arizona and across the country at risk of personal injury. Law enforcement is cracking down on this unlawful activity for the protection of all individuals. Offenders face serious consequences like confiscation of their vehicles, heavy fines, loss of their driver's licenses and the possibility of arrest.

Risky driving behavior of teenage drivers

Recent studies show that Arizona teenagers can be made aware of the risks posed by distracted driving.

Impaired driving accidents in Arizona

Recent statistics continue to suggest that alcohol use can drastically increase a driver's risk of becoming involved in a car accident. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation's 2013 statistics, there are 107,348 car accidents a year in Arizona. Of those accidents, 777 of them result in a fatality and 34,047 results in an injury. Alcohol impaired accidents account for about 10 percent of those accidents and 32 percent of the fatalities.

Use of roundabouts to reduce serious injuries and fatalities

Arizona drivers may have noticed that the state is installing more and more roundabouts at intersections, doing away with the traffic signals that used to govern the directional flow of traffic through the intersections. While many people may find roundabouts annoying, the state has good reason to utilize them more and more while phasing out the four-way stop and signal-controlled intersections.

As such, we should take care to educate ourselves about any surgical treatment we receive.
