Motor vehicle crashes and extreme cold

There are all sorts of weather-related hazards to watch out for while behind the wheel, such as strong winds which knock tree limbs onto the road and heavy rain that interferes with visibility. During the winter months, many parts of the country face especially dangerous conditions due to snow and ice.

Often, it is smart to stay off of the road when temperatures are very cold and it is snowing heavily.

People in Connecticut should be able to walk along a sidewalk without fear of getting hit by a car or other vehicle.

Taking selfies while driving leads to deadly accidents

More than 3,450 people lost their lives in 2016 and thousands more across the United States were seriously injured as a result of  distracted driving accidents. This includes talking and texting on a cellphone while behind the wheel. Yet people in Connecticut and throughout the country continue to engage in this deadly activity. If simply talking or texting on a cellphone while driving isn’t enough, drivers who take selfies of themselves while behind the wheel act as an even greater risk to pedestrians, bicyclists and everyone else on the road. People risk their lives and the lives of others in order to take a pic and upload it to their profile.
