This tip could save your life on New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is a holiday to be enjoyed with family and friends. It's the last night of the year, when we can celebrate all the good times we had and bring home good thoughts toward the year to come. However, all the celebrations can be quickly destroyed by an unplanned-for car accident. For this reason, drivers in Virginia Beach are being encouraged to drink responsibly and don't get behind the wheel if you have any alcohol in your system.

How do trucking companies cause accidents?

Truck drivers need to be the most careful drivers on the road. That's because the slightest misstep could spell ultimate disaster for a truck driver and any vehicle and its driver and passengers around the truck driver. Big trucks are slow to accelerate, slow to stop, slow to maneuver and they weigh thousands and thousands of pounds more than the average vehicle.

DUI prevention strategies that work

As we approach the December holidays, the roads will be packed with travelers visiting family and with partiers who have likely been drinking -- most of who will not be paying as much attention to the road as they should be. Out of all the holiday driving dangers, by far drunk driving is the worst of them and -- as a society -- we need to do everything we can to prevent it.

How to make sure your tire pressure is safe

Safe tires translate into safe cars. It's as simple as that. If there is something wrong with your tires, you won't be able to stop or maneuver as well and that means you're more at risk of getting into a car accident. One of the biggest problems with many tires -- that are otherwise perfectly fine -- is the level of air pressure that motorists have in their tires.
