Are teen drivers more likely to be careless behind the wheel?

Operating a motor vehicle is a privilege that carries major responsibilities for drivers in New Haven, and throughout Connecticut. Taking your focus off of the road and the task of driving, even briefly, can result in a collision. According to the U.S. government’s website for distracted driving, there were approximately 421,000 people injured in car accidents involving distracted drivers in 2012. In general, all drivers are prone to distractions while on the road. However, a recent study has shown that teenage motorists may be more likely to be careless drivers.

People throughout New Haven, and all of the U.S., own dogs of all shapes and sizes. Some keep dogs for companionship, while others keep them for personal or property protection. There are also those who own dogs as service animals and depend on their pet to provide different types of assistance. Regardless of a person’s intentions in owning a dog, they have a responsibility to ensure that their pet does not pose a risk to their neighbors or the public.

In New Have, and elsewhere, regardless of the breed of dog a pet owner has, they have a responsibility to ensure that their pet is properly socialized so it will not attack or that it is safely enclosed in their home or yard. If a dog gets out and attacks someone, it can result in serious personal injury, which can have lasting effects. Often, the pain from dog bite injuries is not just physical; victims of animal attacks often have lasting emotional pain as well.
