States with Primary-Offense Texting laws See Fewer Deaths

We may soon see changes in texting-while-driving laws all over the US. According to the study, states which consider texting while driving a primary offense have seen an 11% drop in fatalities among 15- to 21-year-olds. Based on the Ohio Department of Public Safety's most recent reports, this would mean that if Ohio adopted a similar law, Ohio might see about 31 lives saved every year. If nothing else, this study hopefully sheds light on how dangerous distracted driving can be: in 2012, 293 Ohio injuries and deaths were attributed to driving while distracted by an electronic device. What should a driver do until Ohio treats texting and driving as a primary-offense? Don't text and drive and keep your eyes open. Simply put: texting while driving is dangerous.

Losing someone unexpectedly in an alcohol-related accident leaves an impact on everyone involved. This includes not just the immediate family members of the victim, but also by the victim's friends and all those who associated with them. This seems to be the case in the tragic death of an 18-year-old high school graduate in Ohio as his friends took to social networks to mourn his death in a drunk driving accident.

Eleven injured, two dead in fiery Ohio crash

Even though driving is one of the most common behaviors in which people across the country engage on a daily basis, it is also one of the most dangerous, with many people injured in accidents that could have been avoided if the reckless driver had paid attention on the road. A car accident brings trauma not only to those who were immediately involved in the accident, but also to their family members and even those who witness an especially catastrophic one.

Motorcyclist critically injured in crash

The Independence Day long weekend brought everyone out on to the road, either for traveling to other destinations or just to enjoy the weather. Motorcyclists especially enjoy riding through the streets in warmer weather as they feel the wind rushing through their hair. However, in the traffic, it is often easy for Ohio motorists to overlook other vehicles on the road and, in their negligence, crash into motorcyclists.

One dead, one toddler injured in Ohio car accident

Losing a loved one in a sudden car accident can wreak emotional and financial havoc on loved ones.
