More crashes linked to road rage

More people in Kentucky and across the country are driving dangerously and aggressively. Reports indicate that road rage incidents, especially violent ones, are on the rise. This trend has been continuing for some time, but several serious occurrences have drawn attention to the problem. One woman attempted to shoot another vehicle but accidentally shot her husband, and a family with children were injured when fireworks in their car exploded after another driver shot at their vehicle with a gun.

PCOS sufferers at risk of misdiagnosis

One out of every five women will develop a disorder called polycystic ovarian syndrome during their lifetimes, according to the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Awareness Association. Most doctors think PCOS is a result of both environmental and genetic factors, but there is not yet a consensus among medical professionals and researchers as to the exact causes. Women in Kentucky who believe they may be suffering from PCOS should consult a medical professional for an examination.

Were you involved in a Kentucky motor vehicle collision?

Kentucky roadways are sometimes far from safe. Any number of issues can increase your risk for injury while traveling by motor vehicle. Weather conditions, road conditions, whether you're driving or riding as a passenger, and many other factors may have a significant impact on your ability to safely arrive to your chosen destination.

Underride guards could reduce fatalities in truck accidents

New trucking regulations could potentially improve safety on Kentucky roads, yet significant hurdles stand in the way of implementation. Trucking accidents pose a significant risk of severe injuries and death to pedestrians and occupants of smaller vehicles. Data shows that a particular type of tractor-trailer crash, the side-impact, is responsible for more deaths than other impact types. Underride guards have proven capable of reducing the risk of fatality in these types of collisions, but a political environment wary of new regulations has yet to adopt it nationally.

Auto accident fatalities increasingly due to red light violations

In Kentucky and throughout the U.S., drivers are expected to follow the basic rules of the road to make certain everyone is safe. One fundamental requirement that drivers learn from the start is to stop at a red light. If drivers run a red light, it can result in an auto accident with serious injuries and fatalities. Understanding this problem is imperative to avoiding collisions.

What to know about drunk driving

Drunk driving results in thousands of deaths per year as well as billions of dollars in economic damages. In 2017, there was one drunk driving death every 48 minutes on average in Kentucky and throughout the country. In 2010, researchers attributed $44 billion in economic losses to individuals driving under the influence of alcohol. Driving after consuming alcohol is dangerous because it impairs a person's ability to reason and process information.
