When you are behind the wheel, you should stay off your phone. Your chances of being in a wreck increase if you try to post something on Facebook or Twitter while driving.
You will have a doggy guest in your home soon. Maybe the canine belongs to a human overnight guest, or you are participating in a fostering program. Whatever the case is, it is a good idea to have a plan to introduce your child to the doggy guest for both of their sakes.
Distracted driving has become one of the most common ways car accidents occur. While most people associate distracted driving with texting while behind the wheel, it can involve doing anything that takes your hands from the steering wheel or your eyes from the road.

If you were injured in a Massachusetts car accident, you may be wondering what kind of compensation you would be able to get through a lawsuit.
It is easy to feel responsible for something, especially if the apparent facts point a certain way. However, it is important to remember that you know only your side of the story, and even that may not be as accurate as you think it is. For example, if you had two beers over two hours and then got behind the wheel, you might think that would have been enough to make you too drunk to drive. For some people, it would not be, so it is unwise to admit something such as, "I was drunk," to the police.
Slip-and-falls occur all year round, but in Massachusetts, harsh winters can be a particularly dangerous time of year. Snow and ice are a common cause of falls, but not the only causes.
Massachusetts drivers are all too familiar with the cold winters filled with snow and ice. With winter just around the corner, a quick reminder of how the winter can mean dangerous roads and serious car accidents may be worthwhile.
Having auto insurance is required in nearly all states, Massachusetts included. Thus, it can be frustrating when you are hit and/or injured by another driver and need her or his insurance company to help with your medical recovery and other costs--except the other driver does not have an insurance company at all. In fact, about 13 percent of drivers in 2014 may have been uninsured. It is so much a "given" that many drivers will be uninsured that states require insured drivers to protect against their uninsured counterparts. Massachusetts requires coverage of at least $20,000 per person and $40,000 per accident for bodily injuries caused by an uninsured auto.
Many drivers justifiably feel nervous when they notice a commercial truck approaching. Understanding why big rigs present some unique dangers can help you avoid serious accidents.
