A Car Crash Can Disrupt Your Holiday SeasonBy Pyle Law, March 26 2020 8:12 pm
The holidays are obviously the busiest season of the year, and there’s plenty to look forward to. With the holidays come many, many festivities, but an increase in car accidents is also, unfortunately, a reality of the holidays. While there is no good time to be in a car accident, a car crash during the holidays can be especially disruptive. If another driver’s negligence leaves you injuredt this holiday season, you need an experienced Kansas car accident attorney on your side.
The holiday season is filled with fun and festivities, but with all those good times come increased risks for traffic accidents, including:
Impaired drivers represent a significant danger throughout the year, but the number of impaired motorists on the road increases during the holidays. Impaired drivers are dangerous drivers who make our roadways less safe for everyone who travels them. Yes, the holidays come with plenty of occasions for overindulging, but this is obviously no excuse for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Driving is an immense responsibility that requires our utmost attention. When a driver allows his or her attention to be diverted from the primary task of driving safely, that driver makes our roadways less safe. While there are any number of distractions out there, smartphone usage is by far the most dangerous. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the average amount of time it takes to engage in a text message is 5 seconds, which translates (at highway speeds) to driving blind for the entire length of a football field.
The bustle of the holidays can rattle even the calmest among us, but safe drivers never allow this to affect their driving. The increased traffic of the holidays can bring out the worst in drivers who are prone to driving aggressively in the first place, and this makes traveling by car more dangerous for everyone. Excessive speeding is the most common sign of aggressive driving, but aggressive drivers tend to engage in more than one type of aggressive driving at any given time. This can include:
Always steer clear of aggressive drivers – and alert the authorities if necessary.
