DOT wants to relax trucker drive time rules

Anyone who lives in Connecticut and has ever been alongside a semi-truck or other large commercial vehicle on the road knows how quickly they can feel dwarfed when in a typical passenger vehicle. The large size of these rigs is one factor that makes truck accidents so horrific and dangerous.

Are dogs of certain breeds more likely to bite?

If you or a loved one sustains a dog bite in Connecticut, you should take it seriously. Dog bites can lead to illness, disfigurement, psychological trauma and a number of other health issues. However, even if a dog bite occurs, you should try to stay calm and not overreact. According to Canine Journal, only a small percentage of dog bites result in injury or require medical attention; 81% of them do not. 

Safety tips all new drivers should follow

For new drivers, the risk of an accident is higher than for those with more experience. For instance, a driver who has been behind the wheel for 20 years knows that there is a good chance that the driver drifting close to the edge of the lane poses a threat due to a distraction or intoxication. A less experienced driver might not totally recognize the danger and may not take evasive action.

Motorcyclist killed in multi-vehicle Connecticut crash

Regardless of who is at fault, a motorcyclist is more vulnerable to injury in a collision with a car than occupants of the other vehicle. This is due to the exposure that results from sitting on top of a vehicle rather than inside an enclosed space. A crash involving a motorcycle and two cars in a residential neighborhood of Waterbury, Connecticut, resulted in the motorcyclist's death following ejection from his vehicle. An investigation into the accident required authorities to close down North Main Street in the vicinity of the collision for some time thereafter.
