It always pays to follow the traffic rules. When you do not, you are not only putting yourself at risk, but also putting others in jeopardy. In a recent car accident in Arizona, an inebriated driver zipped through a red light and caused a head-on collision. After the accident, the negligent driver fled from the scene.
Hearts break and life seems to lose its meaning when a close family member dies. The pain and suffering is especially unbearable if the death is accidental. Earlier this month, a 16-year-old high school student died in a car accident in Arizona. The student, whose parents had migrated to Arizona from Japan, died along with three other family members. The fatal accident occurred when the van in which the family was traveling was hit by a truck. The truck was being chased by police.
The brain is the most important organ of the body and the effects of a brain injury can be devastating, wreaking havoc on the body's ability to function normally. A Yuma, Arizona, resident who sustains brain damage can be impaired for life and may need long-term medical care. Accidents resulting in brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time, even while mowing a lawn.
Many automotive accidents could be avoided both in Arizona and in the rest of the nation if drivers would just be a little bit more careful. While speed limits, lane and median markers and other signs are there to ensure that drivers, pedestrians and innocent bystanders are all kept safe, these traffic laws will only work if they are followed.
