July and August peak times for car accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that of all the months of the year, July and August see the most accidents. Many people in Cincinnati may wonder why this is true, especially when ice and snow in winter makes roads hazardous. However, summer driving is not without its dangers.

Amish family injured after truck hits buggy

Ohio residents who live near Amish farms and villages are familiar with horse-drawn buggies bearing the easily recognizable orange identifying triangle. The Amish usually prefer traveling in their horse-drawn buggies to driving automobiles, but their presence on rural roads poses a special traffic hazard.

Man killed on side of highway

Getting out of a motor vehicle on a busy highway is always risky. Other drivers do not expect to see pedestrians near their right of way, and the narrow shoulders on some roads preclude parking a vehicle completely out of traffic. An apparent combination of driver inattentiveness and an unexpected stop recently led to the death of a resident of Greenwich, Ohio.

Three-vehicle crash kills two in northern Ohio

When truck drivers lose control of their vehicles, the results are often catastrophic. Even at relatively slow speeds, other drivers often have little or no chance of avoiding a careening truck. A recent truck accident in Northern Ohio killed two people after the truck driver failed to obey a reduced speed limit.

Why are truck accidents a major problem in Hamilton County?

Despite the fact that truck drivers are more careful on average than motorists, truck accidents are still a major problem on the roads of Hamilton County. Semitrailers are much bigger than passenger cars and trucks. In fact, a semitrailer can weigh 25 times as much as a passenger car, so the destruction can be much worse if an accident happens between these two kinds of vehicles.
