Tourists can cause crashes: Follow these tips to avoid errors

Motor vehicle accidents in New York can occur in busy cities or in rural areas where traffic is rare. With such a varied state, drivers have to learn to drive in a variety of conditions. Those who are living in New York as residents may adjust to the driving conditions easily, but those who are visiting pose a threat due to their lack of experience on New York's roads.

Safe driving tips for driving in winter weather

Winter doesn't even begin for another few weeks, yet there have already been record-breaking cold temperatures and snowfall this year. As we prepare for what the season holds, it can be helpful for us to re-educate ourselves on ways to adapt to driving among ever-changing weather conditions. Here are some rules to remember:

Proving who was to blame for a crash isn't easy

With any type of accident, whether involving a motorcycle, pedestrian, bike or car, there's generally one party that can be pointed to as being responsible for having caused it. Even in a no-fault state like New York, proving who was to blame for causing a collision can impact how much in compensation you're entitled to if you suffer serious injuries in a crash.

Passenger cars are often less safe than trucks in a crash

If you ask most drivers who is likelier to get killed in a crash between a passenger car and a truck, most would likely respond that the person operating the former would be less apt to survive. Would you know what to say when asked why this is the case though?

Motorists should be even more cautious in school zones

You've likely noticed many more buses or parents with children in the back seats of their cars recently as school is getting back into session once again. It can always be helpful to get a refresher in about how to keep our kids safe out on the roadways.
