Alcohol industry supports technology to reduce car accidents

A future where self-driving automobiles grace the roads of Louisiana may be on its way as automakers and technology experts continue to build and test such vehicles. It is hoped that such vehicles will cut down on the number of car accidents, particularly drunk driving accidents. In this respect, one surprising proponent of self-driving vehicle technology is our nation's alcohol industry.

Driver fatigue may be a factor in more car accidents than thought

People in Houma and nationwide do not always get as much sleep as they should. In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 35 percent of motorists have not gotten at least seven hours of sleep nightly. Not getting enough sleep is a serious health and safety issue, particularly when it comes to driving.

What are the symptoms of whiplash after a car accident?

It can happen in a split-second. One minute you are patiently waiting at a stop sign or red light when suddenly, "Bam!" another car crashes into the rear end of yours. Unfortunately, rear-end collisions are relatively common in Houma and nationwide. However, this doesn't mean the victims of rear-end collisions will not suffer serious injuries in the crash, including whiplash.

Guiding you through a legal action following a car accident

Now that the holiday season is upon us, we are likely to see an influx in traffic on the roadways. Individuals and families in Louisiana and elsewhere are busy shopping for gifts, visiting family, going to holiday events and attending parties. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season brings much enjoyment but it also brings stress. Motorists are in a rush to get through their busy schedules, often failing to take necessary cautions while driving. In addition to the concerns regarding distracted driving, there is also a heightened concern for drunk driving. These dangers on the roadways put the lives of other drivers and passengers at risk.

Common car accident injuries

Houma area residents do not expect they will ever be in a car accident, but almost every driver will be at least one car accident during their driving career. Most of the time, these accidents are minor fender-benders, but serious accidents also happen, and they injure and kill thousands each year.
