Road rage incidents skyrocketing across the U.S.

Motorists in New Jersey and other states are increasingly engaging in road rage and other aggressive driving behaviors, according to federal data. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that deadly car accidents involving aggressive driving have skyrocketed in recent years. In addition, a nonprofit news organization reported that incidents involving drivers brandishing or firing guns at other drivers climbed from 247 in 2014 to 620 in 2016.

A brain injury can have life-changing consequences

Car and truck crashes have the potential to cause victims to suffer from brain injuries. A person might hit their head on the windshield, be thrown from the vehicle or even hit their head on the steering wheel. Sometimes, brain injuries can happen without a direct impact. A sudden jolt or stop could result in injuries when the brain moves inside the skull, eventually hitting the skull and suffering from that impact.

How to comply with radiation exposure rules

Individuals in New Jersey and throughout the country are exposed to radiation when they use a microwave or talk on a cellphone. However, this is different than the short-wave radiation that doctors and others are exposed to each day while on the job. Over time, individuals could become vulnerable to cancer or other health issues either while on the job or many years after they have stopped working.

Driver-assist technology remains reliant on human engagement

The driver-assist technology in some new vehicles depends on radar, cameras and software to interpret the data. Although driver-assist features, like automatic emergency braking, have the potential to reduce traffic accidents in New Jersey, drivers cannot rely on them entirely. The chief research officer for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety called the software a work in progress.

Drunk driving, and how to avoid it

Alcohol impairs the central nervous system and can cause everything from impaired muscle coordination to memory lapses. Even a small lapse in judgment can prevent one from doing two things at once or tracking a moving object. When alcohol consumption mixes with driving, the results can be fatal. Every year in New Jersey and across the U.S., around 10,000 people die in drunk driving crashes.
