November 2015 Archives

Police officer killed in head on collision

With the holiday weekend approaching, accidents are of particular concern. After all, more than 40 million Americans are expected to travel this week; especially on Wednesday and Sunday. With higher traffic volumes comes the possibility of accidents, so drivers must be especially careful about what they do behind the wheel.

Top safety tips for driving during Thanksgiving

Last week, when you heard about a possible snowstorm for our region, you probably were thinking “uh oh, travelling during Thanksgiving is going to be hard.” While the snow essentially missed us, it does not mean that travelling by car for the upcoming holiday weekend won’t be difficult.

Never too early to review winter driving safety tips

November in Wisconsin is a time of change. It is almost like we are on borrowed time before snow begins to fall and roads become difficult to navigate. While it appears that we will not see flakes before Thanksgiving, travel on roads may not be so treacherous (especially before the Thanksgiving holiday).

Seatbelts in school buses could be a federal rule

For kids, getting to school shouldn’t be dangerous; especially those who are riding on school buses. After all, when kids are on a bus, they should be safer than those walking to school. When a school bus is involved in an accident, the children on the bus should be protected. However, there are some instances where kids may be at significant risk of suffering harm because they are not wearing seatbelts.

Three things you should never do after an accident

It is always amazing how quickly seasons turn in retail stores. On Saturday, Halloween decorations, costumes and candy dominated shelves. 48 hours later, it appears that the public is ready to embrace the holiday season even though Thanksgiving is still three weeks away.

Why moving violations are important in car accident cases

When we think about a moving violation, we generally are concerned with how it may affect our driving record and how much it will cost to pay for the violation. After all, a certain number of tickets may lead to one’s driving privileges being suspended or even revoked.
