Distracted driving has caused a lot of car accidents in Ohio and throughout the United States. Previous reports show that distracted driving increases the chances of being in a car accident. Now, a new study shows that distracted driving doesn't just impact motorists.
In Ohio, there are many causes of car accidents. Many drivers know that speeding is very dangerous and increases the chances of getting into a car accident. Drivers across the United States understand the dangers of speeding, and a new survey by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that drivers have mixed attitudes about speeding.
Winter is here and for many Ohio drivers, that means the roads will be covered in snow and ice on and off for the rest of the winter season. Snow and ice can make the roads very dangerous at times; when you add freezing temperatures to the mix, the risk of getting into a car accident increases.
A young man is racing down the highway at speeds well in excess of 100 mph. Does he do this just for kicks? Is he on a suicide mission? Whatever his reason, he probably was not on a mission to commit murder, but that is where his reckless driving has taken him. He now sits in a Sandusky county jail facing two charges of vehicular homicide.
