Federal texting and cellphone rules for commercial truckers

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is a regulatory agency with the goal of reducing large truck and bus crashes. Commercial vehicle drivers and their employers face penalties for violations of federal trucking regulations. These parties also may be held accountable in New York civil courts, when driver or company negligence causes serious injuries or fatalities in a truck accident.

Why are people injured or killed in construction accidents?

In New York, it seems like a construction worker is hurt on the job every week. They are seriously injured and sometimes the accident leads to their death. Innocent people who are simply trying to walk by the construction site are injured as well. For instance, in February, a woman was hit with a piece of plywood that blew off a fence at a construction site and she died.

Distracted driving can lead to fatalities

Driving distracted is such a huge problem that the U.S. Department of Transportation has issued a guideline that is attempting to inform us of the dangers of this activity. The topic of this booklet works to reduce the occurrence of driving distracted. Car accidents due to this activity can cause injury and death -- not only to the drivers of the vehicle but the passengers, pedestrians and bikers.
