Don't let a car accident ruin your holidays

Though it is not yet winter, snow and ice have arrived in Pennsylvania like those pesky relatives that show up hours early for a family gathering. Residents are happy to see them, but a bit more time to prepare would have been nice. In the last week, winter weather took the Keystone State by surprise, and some unfortunate souls had to deal with a car accident instead of holiday plans. 

Motorcycle accidents can change victims' lives

During the holiday season, people are looking forward to time-honored traditions and family gatherings. From a secret gravy recipe to the perfect gift for that special someone, excitement is in the air as this busy time of year once again gets underway. In Pennsylvania, another annual tradition already has residents buzzing, and a local man reminds people of the plight of victims of motorcycle accidents.

Truck accident statistics: Driver a "trashy" reputation

Pennsylvania residents are probably used to sharing the road with a garbage truck or two throughout an average week. It can be frustrating to get stuck behind one of these vehicles, but drivers may want to think twice before trying to pass around a garbage truck when there is no designated passing area. Certainly, a truck accident could be caused by an impatient driver, but recent statistics reveal that some sanitation drivers are truly a danger to the public. 

Research offers new data about women and motorcycle accidents

Pennsylvania is a state rich in history, and when it comes to motorcycle culture, more than a century of continued growth has made the Keystone State a place where bikers both honor their heritage and become ambassadors for future generations of motorcyclists. Gone are the days when not many women were into riding, and manufacturers have developed new products that appeal to a wider customer base. Motorcycle culture has become a shining example of gender equality, but bikers may be shocked to learn that when it comes to data regarding motorcycle accidents, women have been left behind. 

Massive car accident a somber reminder

Some areas of Pennsylvania have already been hit with a bout of winter weather, and it won't be long until drivers have to contend with snow and ice. Dangerous road conditions require extra vigilance, and during the winter months, drivers must contend with increased holiday traffic and decreased daylight. Even an experienced and law-abiding driver can become the victim of a car accident in the blink of an eye. 

Bus accidents: have you considered the risks to your child?

Recently, the state of Pennsylvania has put together an initiative headed by the state police and the Department of Education to call attention to the importance of school bus safety. Thousands of children ride the bus to school, sporting events and field trips. Other drivers must pay close attention to the lights and stop signs, and if a driver does not follow the laws, the penalty can be hefty, but worse, children could be seriously injured or killed. With all the attention focused on other drivers, parents may not have considered the possibility that the bus drivers themselves might cause bus accidents
