What should I do if involved in a hit and run?

Pennsylvania drivers must be considerate and conscientious on the road. However, some motorists fail to abide by the rules, which can lead to a hit and run accident. Because this can be a stressful experience, it’s important for you to take the proper steps should a hit and run happen to you. In this case, State Farm offers the following advice.

Can a car accident cause post-traumatic stress disorder?

When it comes to injuries sustained in Pennsylvania car accidents, you may think primarily in terms of physical harm. It goes without saying that a roadway collision can affect your physical health, but you may not realize that it can also affect your mental condition. People who appear outwardly unhurt after a crash may suffer the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder as a result. 

Pennsylvania sees yo-yo trend with DUI arrests

The New Year's holiday is a common time of year for awareness about drunk driving to increase as people in Pennsylvania either seek for ways to get home safely or perhaps choose to stay home altogether in part due to the risk of being hit by a drunk driver. The state has seen varying results from holiday checkpoints designed to catch impaired drivers in the act.

Pickup strikes horse and buggy in deadly Pennsylvania collision

Most motorists probably understand the importance of sharing the road with other vehicles, but it may be difficult to remember sometimes that other vehicles do not only include cars and trucks. Sometimes they include non-motorized vehicles such as a horse-drawn buggy. The 62-year-old driver of such a buggy lost his life on Friday following a collision with a pickup truck.

Drunk driving laws may not be tough enough

Many people in Pennsylvania might hear about how tough the laws against drunk driving are yet they still hear and read about many serious and even fatal accidents caused by drunk drivers. Even though the state lowered the blood alcohol content threshold for drunk driving from 0.10 percent to 0.08 percent 15 years ago, it seems law enforcement has not been able to stem the tide of deaths attributed to impaired drivers. This logically makes one wonder if the laws are tough enough.

Dauphin County sees jump in traffic fatalities

If you are concerned about your safety and the safety of your friends and family members on the road in Pennsylvania, you are not alone. Motor vehicle accidents can happen anytime, anywhere and have to some degree come to be accepted as a normal part of life. However, these things do not need to happen and records from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that Dauphin County has experienced significant increases in the number of lives lost in traffic accidents.

Child among nine hurt when SUV hit emergency vehicle

Residents of Pennsylvania know that when they hear the sirens or see the flashing lights of an emergency vehicle, they should pull over and stop until they know that vehicle has safely passed them if that needed to happen. This is true whether the emergency vehicle is a police car, an ambulance or a fire truck. It should always be assumed that these vehicles are on their way to help others in need and standing in the way of that should not happen.
