How alcohol impairs a driver

It is not a surprise that drinking alcohol affects a person’s ability to drive safely. Every year, there are numerous accidents and fatalities associated with drunk driving in Indiana. However, many people do not understand how alcohol affects their bodies and may drive, thinking they are perfectly okay to do so.

Defensive driving techniques for motorcycles

Motorcycles are the most vulnerable vehicles on Indiana roadways. It is up to riders to do everything they can to stay safe. One of the best ways to do this is to drive defensively. This means driving in a way that will avoid dangers and keep the rider safe. Road Guardians offers some tips for cyclists on defensive driving.

Motorcycle accidents: Who is at fault?

Whether you are a motorcyclist or a motorist, you should know how to stay safe on the road. Motorcyclists should always drive defensively, and keep a sharp eye out for motorists who may not be paying attention. Motorists should always look out for motorcyclists who may be hiding in their blind spot or pulling out between vehicles. In either case, riding a motorcycle can be dangerous and often comes with inherent risks. When riding a motorcycle, you don’t have the protective barrier between you and road if an accident should occur. Motorcycles are not equipped with the same safety devices that motor vehicles have.

Could shutting off cell phones in company cars start a trend?

Let's face it, distracted driving -- particularly cell phone use -- has become an epidemic in the United States. Drivers throughout the country, including here in Indiana, find it difficult to put down their cell phones while they drive. You may only take your attention off the road for a few seconds, but it only takes seconds for accidents to happen.

Man dead and woman injured in DUI car accident

When people make the decision to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, they put their lives and the lives of others in imminent danger. Not only does alcohol cause impaired perception and slower reaction time, but drivers often have difficulties controlling their speed and lose the ability to concentrate on the road. Young people who make poor choices can essentially ruin their lives by drinking and driving, as they must face the consequences of their actions should they injure or kill someone.

What is distracting today’s commercial truckers?

Indiana is a major trucker thoroughfare, and if you are like many residents, you may feel a bit uncomfortable trying to drive your own car among these much larger, heavier vehicles. Just as you face distractions while you drive, whether they involve eating, looking out the window or what have you, truck drivers, too, face similar distractions. Giving in to them may prove even more dangerous when behind the wheel of a multi-ton vehicle, making it critical that trucking companies train their drivers about various distractions for the safety of everyone on the roadway.
