You may think that it is very clear that texting and driving is dangerous. Looking away from the road while holding the wheel with just one hand puts everyone at risk.
Were you involved in a car accident over the Fourth of July? If so, you are certainly not alone. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) notes that the Fourth of July is almost always one of the top days of the year for car crashes. That is based on data from roughly the last 25 years.
You got in a motorcycle accident. It was something you hoped would never happen, and you avoided it for years, but not forever.
Do you ever feel like people on the internet are much quicker to get angry than people in "real life?" If you were talking face-to-face, you'd probably have a civil discussion. Online, it quickly devolves into insults and people just shouting their opinions at each other. No one holds back. People who may seem perfectly normal and nice in any other setting can turn petty and vindictive.

For many years, there have been a lot of jokes about people claiming whiplash after a vehicle crash. We've all seen movies and TV shows where people walk (or pushed in a wheelchair) into a courtroom wearing a cervical collar to seek money for an injury that may or may not be real.
A woman in Arizona was tragically killed when she was hit by a self-driving Uber vehicle earlier this year. Uber was testing the self-driving car when it happened, something the company was also doing in Pennsylvania. Those tests stopped, at least for the time being, as the fatal wreck was investigated.
Cars and motorcycles are not necessarily a good mix. An accident puts motorcyclists in serious danger, as they simply do not have the protection of a driver in a car. That driver may walk away from a crash without a scratch, while the motorcyclist suffers serious and even fatal injuries.
High school students look forward to prom night for months. It's a celebration, a rite of passage and a tradition going back decades.
Drowsy driving, in many ways, is similar to drunk driving. If you are too tired, your reaction time isn't nearly what it should be, and you can actually fall asleep behind the wheel. Even just nodding off for a second can cause an accident.
