Drugged driving on the rise

Golf great Tiger Woods was recently arrested for driving under the influence after he was found sleeping in an idling car in Jupiter, Florida. He attributed the DUI to an adverse reaction to prescription medications. This arrest illustrates that drugged driving has outpaced drunk driving and can be a major component of car accidents in New York and throughout this country.

Walk away from a pedestrian crash with monetary damages

When you are walking near traffic, you are naturally vulnerable to injury. After all, unlike motorists on the road, you do not have anything surrounding you to protect you. Unfortunately, sometimes drivers in New York fail to pay attention to their surroundings and end up striking pedestrians.

Safety measures have made some NY streets safer

Safety measures, such as 3-foot steel cylindrical bollards, prevented additional fatalities and injuries when a motorist plowed his car into pedestrians in Times Square last month and killed an 18-year-old woman and injured 20 other pedestrians. This tragedy has sparked a review of safety measures imposed in 2012 to prevent future injuries from terrorists or even negligent parties.
