Distracted driving poses serious roadway threat

Many Oregon drivers are wary of sharing the road with teens, especially because they may drive with many friends packed in the car and be more prone to the errors of inexperienced drivers. For teen drivers to improve their skills, it is important that they get time behind the wheel to develop as experienced operators. However, there are other concerns about teens' safety while driving, and some of those are brought to attention for Teen Driver Safety Week. Teens and their parents pay higher car insurance premiums because they are more likely to have car accidents, a belief backed up by statistics.

What can you do to prevent concussion?

Compared to other traumatic brain injuries in Oregon, a concussion is often relatively mild. The effects are usually temporary, and the patient typically recovers fully.

Driver arrested after fleeing the scene of Portland accident

Few people in Salem likely ever anticipate being involved in a car accident. On the contrary, most may believe that their strong driving skills will help them to avoid collisions. There may indeed be some merit to that argument, yet one fact that people cannot overlook is the inability to control the actions of others. Oftentimes all it may take is a single careless decision or reckless action to lead to a chain of events that ends in a devastating accident. Such accidents often leave victims dealing with physical limitations, emotional losses and inordinate expenses, as well as uncertainty as to how they will be able to handle the financial burdens the incidents force them to deal with.
