When it comes to summer #roadsafety, few motorists stop to consider the condition of their tires.

But it's your tires, more than any other part of your vehicle, that will have the most impact on whether you arrive safely at your destination. The American Automobile Association (+AAA) reports vehicles on worn tires take nearly an extra 100 feet to stop at highway speeds compared to vehicles #traveling on newer tires.

As of May 2018, all new vehicles manufactured in the United States must be equipped with backup cameras. #CNBC reports that the initial law was passed by #Congress in 2008. The law was, in part, supported by evidence given by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. #NHTSA #Lawyer #Settlement #NorthCarolina

We’ve all seen them on the road – aggressive drivers. #Tailgating. Weaving in between traffic. Running a red light. Racing on the streets like there’s no one else on the road. What these drivers don’t realize – or don’t care about – is that their actions can dramatically increase the risk of a car accident that results in serous injuries or fatalities. And according to recent findings, it is a serious problem in #NorthCarolina. #AggressiveDriving #NC #Lawyer #Settlement

New #technologies have been expanding the options for in-vehicle #entertainment and information for many years now. These options also give drivers the unfortunate temptation to divert their attention from the roadway.

As #smartphones and in-vehicle entertainment systems become more prevalent on the roads of #America, safety advocates are looking for new ways to address this growing danger. Some have been effective and others have not. It is important for #Wilmington drivers to understand the problem of distracted driving in order to make the roads of #NorthCarolina safer for everyone.

Melting snow and warmer weather means an increasing number of motorcycle riders will soon be on the roads throughout the Carolinas.

North Carolina law requires all riders to obtain a motorcycle endorsement or learner's permit. The North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles reports 151 riders were killed in 2016. More than 3,700 crashes injured more than 3,000 riders that year.

School bus accidents fall under a second exception to sovereign immunity, in which the state has consented under certain circumstances to waive its immunity rights. This case is applicable as a result of having purchased liability insurance for busing operations. These cases are handled before the industrial commission, rather than in state court. In recent years, districts have joined the North Carolina School Board Trust instead of purchasing liability insurance, and in such cases the North Carolina Supreme Court has ruled they have not waived immunity.

Whenever a child is injured at school or while participating in a school-related function, an experienced injury lawyer in Wilmington should be contacted. These are complex cases.

A study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association finds that motorcycle crashes are associated with significant injury and fatality rates for both drivers and passengers. Now, a new study reports that this risk may be even higher for motorcycle passengers than motorcycle operators.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration corroborates this result and also finds that the trend continues into early adulthood; traffic accidents are also the leading cause of death for young adults ages 21 to 24.
