Fatigued drivers can cause serious motor vehicle accidents

Drivers of large commercial vehicles must be very careful to avoid causing an accident. This is because a motor vehicle accident involving a commercial vehicle weighing tens of thousands of pounds can be very catastrophic. Commercial vehicle drivers must obtain a special license to operate their vehicle, and like all motorists, must drive with due care.

Where to turn after a car accident

The snow has started falling in Minnesota and that means residents will be driving in winter weather conditions for the coming months. While most motorists will drive carefully when roads are slick with snow and ice, there will always be those who ignore the dangerous road conditions and drive recklessly. When this happens, a negligent driver can cause a car accident that injures or kills another person.

What should motorists do to avoid causing a pedestrian accident?

Winter may be coming, but pedestrians and bicyclists will still be on Minnesota roads. According to the Office of Traffic Safety, every year from 2011 to 2015, an average of 35 pedestrians and seven bicyclists lose their lives after being struck by a vehicle. Combined, they constituted almost 11 percent of all traffic deaths. Most of these collisions -- 72 percent -- took place in urban parts of the state.
