Holiday season means drunk drivers on the road

Over the course of their lives, nearly three in every ten Americans will be involved in a motor vehicle accident that involves the influence of alcohol.

New NHTSA law designed to reduce car accident deaths

While the loss of any life in a car accident is tragic, such an incident is that much more difficult to handle when the person killed is a child. While these accidents may involve other vehicles, in some cases children are struck and killed when cars run over them while backing up in driveways or parking lots. These types of accidents may happen when the person behind the wheel fails to see the much smaller child behind the car.
