Most people will end up in a motor vehicle accident at some point. If you feel hurt, then you need to see a doctor immediately.

Motorcycle riders benefit from the latest safety innovations

Life on two wheels: common causes of motorcycle accidents

Ask motorcycle owners why they choose two wheels over four, and you’ll hear more reasons than you can shake a leather jacket at: cost and fuel efficiency, the sense of freedom and adventure, ease of parking, camaraderie, reduced carbon footprint, and – let’s be honest – riding a bike is the iconic image of cool.

While motorcycle enthusiasts are as loyal to their mode of transportation as Juliet was to Romeo, it is no secret that it can be a dangerous way to travel. And South Carolina is no exception. In fact, in the past few years it has been in the top five states in numbers of motorcycle accidents and fatalities.

New technology brings new dangers to the road

Every year, new cars on the road seem to come with a number of new and exciting technological upgrades. Some, including blind spot warnings and backup cameras, help increase your safety and the safety of your fellow drivers.

Unfortunately, not all of these innovations are making South Carolina’s highways safer. The rise of one particular type of technology in our cars is distracting drivers and removing their focus from the road.

5 mistakes pool owners make that put others in danger

Whether you go to a public pool, a hotel pool or a pool in someone’s backyard, you probably assume it is going to be safe. You probably assume the owners know about -- and comply with -- the various pool regulations and take their ownership responsibilities very seriously.

Unfortunately, there are pool owners who fail to do these things. These failures can have catastrophic consequences including drowning and other serious injuries so it is crucial that owners take action to avoid mistakes – especially the five mistakes we examine below.

Sadly, people still drive while distracted by their phones, oftentimes assuming they can do so safely. But make no mistake about it: There is no safe way to drive while distracted. In fact, three solutions aimed at preventing distracted driving or attempting to make it safer fall short of those goals. In some cases, they actually make drivers even more distracted.
