"Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign begins in Ohio

As summer comes to a close and Labor Day approaches, law enforcement officials in Ohio are getting ready for enhancing their road patrols for a couple of weeks. The "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" event is underway in Ohio as well as neighboring states, a campaign that allows officers to stay out on the road longer and set up more checkpoints. The program aims to intercept and deter drunk drivers, or any form of impaired driving.

What happens after a hit-and-run crash?

When drivers get behind the wheel of their car, they expect to follow all traffic safety regulations, drive carefully and arrive home safely. This is not, however, always the case-though one of the most common activities people across the country engage in, it is also one of the most dangerous as many people lose their lives in tragic car crashes. Though nothing can replace the loss an Ohio resident has suffered when they lose someone in an accident, they can hold someone accountable through a personal injury lawsuit and gain compensation that can cover many of the expenses suddenly coming their way. But what happens when the other party, the party that caused the accident, has fled from the scene of the accident?

New study equates drowsy and drunk driving

Due to the awareness campaigns launched against drinking and driving, many Ohio residents are aware of the dangers of getting behind the wheel intoxicated. However, many people do not think twice before getting behind the wheel while drowsy, even though a new report suggests that drowsy drivers' reaction times are just as bad as drunk drivers.

Fighting for justice in hit-and-run accidents

Ohio residents who have lost someone in a fatal accident may be aware that it is possible to hold the negligent driver who caused the accident criminally and civilly liable. Criminal liability means criminal charges and possible jail time whereas civil liability could mean financial compensation for the family members. Though nothing can replace the loss they have suffered, compensation could help grieving family members with financial costs associated with losing a loved one-funeral expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering and loss of consortium. But what happens when the accident is a hit and run one, as mentioned in last week's blog post-how can a missing driver be held responsible for their negligent behavior?
