Last month was Distracted Driving awareness month. Truck driver distractions, in particular, can cause catastrophic accidents, and there may be any number of reasons why such accidents occur.

Accidents increase due to 70 mph

I have posted many blogs about driver safety, distracted driving, and speed. In a recent study, it appears the newly implemented 70 mph on Wisconsin’s roadways has increased the number of accidents, fatalities and personal injuries. Distracted and driving under the influence, along with speed, appear to be the most common form of accidents. It […]

Tire Safety

The other day while my car was in for service, the mechanic from the auto repair shop called me to tell me my tires were shot and all four needed to be replaced. I asked the obvious questions, are you sure, can they last one more season, do they all need to be replaced, how […]
