Traffic congestion and the risk of a crash

There are countless risk factors to be aware of on the road but driving in congested traffic can be especially dangerous for various reasons. Sometimes, people associate traffic congestion with traffic jams and slow speeds. However, there are a number of hazards that drivers may encounter in these situations and accidents may be more likely to occur in certain circumstances. Furthermore, the consequences can be devastating, resulting in an injury or even the loss of someone’s life.

Employment-motivated dstracted driving

For many people in Pennsylvania, the time they spend in the car driving to and from work can take a big chunk out of their daily lives. Some people choose to pass the time by listening to the radio or even perhaps enjoying an audio book. Other people use the time to essentially extend their workday by taking and making calls while driving. Even with hands-free options, the use of mobile phones can be dangerous for drivers and others on the road around them.

Safe walking procedures that may help keep disaster at bay

As warmer weather continues to set in, you may prefer to stay off Pennsylvania roads and do most of your traveling on the sidewalk. With clearly marked crosswalks and traffic lights with walk signals at many intersections, it may seem like there has never been a safer time to be a pedestrian.

As an adult, you certainly know better than to go to another person's house or on their property in pursuit of an attraction you find interesting. With this comprehension also comes the knowledge that if you do so, the property owner will not be liable if you were on their land without permission. Yet is it realistic to expect the same comprehension from your kids?
