Negligent behaviors during the holidays can be tragic

In our last post we discussed holiday traveling across the nation. There will no doubt be a lot of people out on the roads as they rush to finish up their holiday shopping and prepare for holiday parties. Some may even be traveling long distances in order to see their family members.

Many people expected to travel around Christmas holiday

When Christmas comes, many people throughout the nation opt to spend the holiday with friends and family celebrating. This results in people using various forms of transportation to get from one point to another. The American Automobile Association indicates many Americans are planning on doing this around Christmas and New Years. It estimates that close to 1 in 3 people--or approximately 100.5 million--will get into their cars and travel more than 50 miles. This is a record high.

While it is possible for anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident to suffer serious injuries, this is even more likely when the occupant of a car is involved in a collision with a truck. The weight difference between most cars and semis is great and smaller vehicles—and those inside of them—often experience more destruction since the force of impact has so much less weight to absorb it. Because the damage can be so severe, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, makes rules designed to try to prevent such incidents from occurring in the first place.
