Motorcyclist struck by multiple vehicles dies

Anytime people drive on the roads in Tennessee they take certain risks. This is not always because of their own actions though. The risk is that they cannot control the actions of the other drivers on the roads. If people make bad choices, others who may have been driving perfectly could end up in an accident. This is even more true for motorcyclists as they are harder to see. Also, if they are in an accident the outcome can be much worse as they are not equipped with the same safety devices as cars and trucks. Often times they are left with catastrophic injuries.

Whether you agree with this argument or not, it's difficult to ignore the other side of the discussion: red-light cameras can save lives.

Experts identify new foe in the fight against distracted driving

When the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released its annual highway fatality numbers last year, many were anticipating another year of declining figures consistent with a trend that has endured for roughly four decades.

Determined and dynamic representation for accident victims

Given the near perfect weather that much of Tennessee has enjoyed over the last few weeks, a person could be forgiven for thinking that we are currently in the beginning of September.
